Coming over from Android and just wondering if you can use the Iphone 6 as a Mobile Hot Spot?
yes, verizon offers that feature for free. T-mobile and AT-T you need to pay additionally.
Works well on my plus with tmo.
It sucks up your data though, so be aware of that.
Not sure about the 6 but it used to suck the heck out of my 5S battery, too!
I stopped doing it when purchased the 128gb Air with AT&T cellular.
You don't pay more if you are on an AT&T share plan right?
Correct. Only the old plans without data sharing require an additional fee.
Right. It's included in the mobile share plan.
Have ATT and one change I noticed with using it as a hotspot is that my kids iPods can join it now. Not sure when that changed, is that a 8.0 thing?
Phew. I have been using my phone as a hotspot nonstop since I got the free doubling of our data.
As long as your carrier allows you too. I was using my iPhone 5c this morning as a hotspot because the hotel I'm at, lost its wifi for some reason.
The hotspot is a big reason I left AT&T "unlimited" for the new plans. Now with the double data it's even a more valuable perk.
Im on tmobile and i get 5gb of tethering free.
Not 100% correct ! unlimited users have to pay $30 a month for it
Is it included in the Verizon single plan? Unlimited talk/text, 2GB of data.
Not correct. T-Mobile includes mobile hotspot/tethering with all their current postpaid plans. And even though T-Mobile made no announcement, they activated tethering at no additional cost for prepaid plans a few months ago as well.
The "single line plan"?
It's an iOS 4 or 5 thing. Can't remember which one exactly. However, it's only allowed on plans with personal hotspot support (e.g. More Everything, Mobile Share, $30 add-on for UDP, tiered data 4+GB, etc).
Try to tether with Bluetooth and not wifi. Much better on the battery.
I have the $30 pre-paid plan w/ T-Mobile. The hotspot feature is included in it
Too late as my iPad is now cellular! I would not have it any other way now.
much much slower connection
Yes but if your not streaming Netflix or porn you'll be ok with normal web surfing
