If you are the owner of a Moto Droid Charge, HTC Thunderbolt, or LG Revolution, and you use their mobile hotspot feature, you will like this news from Verizon. Big Red announced that they will extend the current mobile hotspot offer for these devices through July 6th. Here's the press release:
I suppose one way to look at it is that they keep giving us extensions on this service to reduce the "sting" we may feel when they actually announce pricing for it in July. Either that, or they are having trouble actually deciding on a pricing structure.Verizon Wireless has extended the Limited Time promotion for Mobile Hotspot and Mobile Broadband Connect on 4G LTE (Long Term Evolution) Smartphones, ThunderBolt by HTC, DROID Charge by Samsung, and Revolution by LG. The following are the Unlimited Hotspot promotion details.
Limited Time promotion available through 7/6/2011 which allows customers unlimited 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot and Mobile Broadband Connect usage until July 6, 2011 with the purchase of a ThunderBolt by HTC, a DROID Charge by Samsung, or a Revolution by LG, with a voice plan and a data package $29.99 or higher.
The $20/GB (Gigabyte) plan will not be available on 4G LTE Smartphones. On July 6, 2011 a software update will remove the Mobile Hotspot offer. A message will be sent to the end user to contact their system administrator to subscribe to Mobile Hotspot.
