    I'm interested in using personal Hotspot on my iPhone. However, I have unlimited data on my iPhone right now. If I add personal Hotspot, will my iPhone's data get capped as well, or just the data transferred via personal Hotspot?

    read up on verizon's site. It simply states it's a separate charge for it.

    No, that's only with AT&T in the US that you lose unlimited when you add tethering.

    You keep the unlimited phone data but get a hotspot cap of 2GB

    The warning states that when hotspot is connected any data used on other devices AND the phone itself will count toward the 2GB limit. I assume then that when the hotspot is disconnected and the phone uses data, it goes toward the "unlimited" pot. At least, it better be that way!
