    Default Minimum data plan required to enable Mobile Hotspot on phone

    I have the 4GB Mobile Share Value Plan with one phone--a Moto X--attached. I'm financing the phone using the AT&T Next plan, if that matters.

    My question is about enabling the Mobile Hotspot feature on the phone. The confusing thing is that...it works! (It works really well, actually: 6Mbps down, 5Mbps up.) According to the AT&T support page below, you need at least a 5GB plan to create a Mobile Hotspot. Did AT&T reduce the minimum plan required to enable the feature, or am I going to see some surprise charge on my bill? Not talking about the data use itself, just to enable the function.

    Did you miss this part.

    You must have a Mobile Share or a DataPro 5GB
    The 5gb requirement is part of DataPro.

    I did--I guess the "a" before Data Pro makes the difference!
