    You have to root to use hotspot no matter the carrier.

    I just signed on with T Mobile, and from what I understand, there is NO CHARGE FOR HOTSPOT. Now, I have the unlimited plan. That is 50+20 for the unlimited, and I was told that I have a hotspot on the phone for NO CHARGE. In addition, I can hook up 5 devices to the hotspot and each one will have 500 mb of data.. All of this is included in my Tmobile plan of $70 which is $50 for the plan and $20 for the unlimited data. No extra charge for hotspot. With Sprint and ATT there is a charge. I know there is a charge with Sprint because my wife has Sprint.

    He is talking about a prepaid plan which charges $15 for hotspot.

    Yes that is weird. The no-charge for the hotspot is one of the game changers that made me come to TMobile..

    I was with Cricket, which also doesn't charge for Hotspot, but Cricket doesn't have unlimited data for my smartphone, whereas, Tmobile does. Tmobile allows you, that is on my plan, to hook up 5 devices to the hotspot, and no charge. Each one of those devices have 500mb free, go over, and it is $10 for 2gb...
