    smoking through 10 megs of data

    I recently was changed from unlimited data plan to 10 megs per month.
    Because my new phone was 4g and they took away my unlimited plan.
    I use my free mobile hotspot to link to my laptop at work.
    I believe I use normal amounts of data per month half a dozen videos streamed nowhere near 10 megs.
    But I have been at or over over 10 megs at the end plans Cycle!
    my number 1 day 1 data usage is the mobile hotspot??
    Please explain to me whether or not that mobile hotspot uses more data than using let's a PDA.net to transfer my internet service to a different machine?

    You say "free mobile hotspot"...what exactly is the free hotspot...I didn't think one of those exist...particularly with Verizon and their new data plans. Can you elaborate on the free hotspot?

    It's part of the share everything plan

    Oh...not that familiar with the new share plans. Then what he is saying makes more sense to me now...I guess I better go study the new share plans. Nothing is free anymore If it's data on a mobile network you're going to pay something for it for sure.

    If they're charging you $20 a month for 10GB, then what is free? I guess that is what I'm trying to figure out.

    There was an fcc ruling due to an agreement that Verizon had in getting access to the airways (or something like that), that those with limited data plans (tiered and share everything) could not be charged extra for the hotspot. Those on unlimited plans can still be charged for the hotspot...and they are at $20 more per month.

    Trinibob, for the months that you were using the hotspot feature before it was free (when you were on the unlimited plan), how much data each month were you using. You can check online looking at data usage of past bills.

    Also, keep in mind that if you were 3g before, chances are that you are using a lot more data on 4g. It is sort of the nature of the beast. Because you are able to load more data faster, you tend to do more accessing data in less time. In essence, if you spent an hour surfing the web, doing web tasks or using apps that use data on 3g, doing an hour on 4g of surfing, web tasks, data apps is accessing a lot more mb's of data.

    Correct me if I am wrong but the OP is referring to 10 MEGS of data.... Am I the only one not seeing that as an issue or are you guys just assuming he meant 10 GIGs?? I am not aware of VZW offering plans of less then 2GB on the Share Everything plan.... As far as the "free Mobile Hotspot" It's not really free there just aren't any additional charges for using it.... But if the OP is actually only getting 10 Megs you are only talking about being able to upload a hand ful of photos..... My guess is he is maybe mistaken and actually gets 10 GB but is trying to limit himself to 10 Megs which is not necessary.... I am not sure how anyone with a smart phone could actually stay under 10 megs in one month...
