    I thought with the share plan it is included. On mine I have mobile hotspot option. Works.

    On Verizon, I believe that if you are on an "unlimited" plan, you have to pay extra for mobile hot spot (MHS) usage, but if you are on a restricted data plan, you can use MHS without the extra charge, but are obviously limited by the amount of data usage you have on your plan. (In other words, it doesn't matter if the plan is "shared" or not, what matters is whether your data usage is limited or not).

    Maybe I'm mistaken, or maybe Verizon has changed their policy. I do believe, however, that FCC regulations prevent them from blocking 3rd party HS apps, so if Foxfi is working for you I guess that's good enough.

    I use my phone as a mobile hotspot when we're at our place in western North Carolina with no Internet connection. (That's one of the main reasons we switched to Verizon, since AT&T got no reception there.) We're on a limited data plan, and we do have to pay extra for the hotspot feature. However, it is prorated, so if we only use it for a week or a couple of days, we're not charged for the whole month. Their data-usage algorithm or something can get a little screwy when I turn the hotspot on and off (you can do this with the My Verizon app on the phone), and I get notices that I'm about to go over the limit, but no overage ever shows up in my bill.
