Cheaper way for Personal Hot Spot - Tethering iphone to Laptop


Feb 23, 2011, 9:58 PM
Just got the iphone last Friday. Really like it thus far except...

I am on the road (unfortunately in hospital mucho these days) and in past have used PDA NET with my HTC to tether. Was free to do so.

With iphone4/Verizon for personal Hotspot is 20 bucks a month for 2G. (this is over and beyond the normal monthly data plan fee) If you go over 2G another 20bucks.
Well, In a matter of days I had used 90%.

Hate to lose this phone and go Droid but need an unlimited plan or a cheaper solution.

Thank you for any help.

I have a Palm Pre Plus. Hotspotting it costs $0, because Verizon is still doing free Mobile Hotspot with Palm Pre devices...
