    How's the Mobile HotSpot work with our new ICS update? Do you still have to have it activated by Verizon to work or does it work with whatever plan that you have?

    Thanks,

    It is included in the new share everything plans. I'd you are still on one of the old plans you still have to activate it.

    Right now I'm tethered with FoxFi but I haven't tried Verizon's Hot Spot.yet. I guess I should just to ensure it works.

    hmmm...for some reason, I thought I read that it automatically works with ICS and you don't have to pay extra for it. Interesting. I'll have to try out FoxFi when I get back state side.

    WIth ICS you still have to pay for VZW tethering.
    It's the new VZW plans that you don't have to pay. It's the share everything plan.

    aha...got it. Understand now. Once I switch over to the Share Everything Plan, I can then use Mobile Hotspot. Or...I can just use FoxFi, right?

    If you did decide to change over to the share everything plan (which I would not suggest if you have unlimited data right now) then you can use the mobile hot spot. But if not then you can use FoxFi. Just to be clear, FoxFi is technically against VZW TOS, so be careful when using it. Where as Mobile hotspot isnt.

    Before I deployed, I was on the Unlimited Data plan and paid for Mobile Hotspot. Just looking at a way to tether my ASUS Transformer to my phone.

    USB tethering is still available and free right from the settings menu if that helps

    Yes, It has been talked about many times on this forum and others. I have been using it for over two years without a hitch. You just have to make sure your phone is tethered first or the phone won't allow you to choose the option.
