Mobile Hotspot Question


Aug 15, 2012, 8:31 AM
I currently have the MyTouch 4G. I use the mobile hotspot on my phone to provide internet for my laptop. I've never had to pay the $20 fee (or however much it is) to use the hotspot...and I have been using it just like this for almsot 2 years now and I use right aroud 5G's of data a month. Can I do this on this phone....or when I go to "turn on the hotspot feature" will it not allow me because I don't have the "paid hotspot" feature on my account?

Can someone test this or that already as knowledge let me know!

I can't state as far as the Samung Galaxy S III is concerned, although I would think they would require the mobile hotspot feature for the phone.

But I also have the Mytouch 4G and was using the mobile hotspot feature for about a year, and never was required to have the mobile hotspot feature, until about last month. T-Mo finally caught up with me using it and shut the mobile hotspot feature off on the phone. I'm suprised that you have been able to use it for so long without them requesting the mobile hotspot.
