    Question hot spot nots so hot

    So I'm tryin to use my updated dinc as a hotspot for my psp but I am receiving messages, on my pap, that speak of monthly payment plans and such. I pay for unlimited data usages so I assumed using my phone as a hotspot would b covered in unlimited data. Amy I wrong? Did I set it up wrong? Any help would be well, helpful. Thanks, peace.

    Hotspot, tethering, etc. cost unless you root.

    No, you didn't set anything up wrong. VZW just charges extra for tethering. And the extra charge is a capped data plan.

    You may want to explore rooting your phone. That would give you a work around to enable wifi tethering for free.

    It would affect future updates but it wouldn't prevent them. They wouldn't be installed automatically (or if they did you'd lose root) but an option would be a custom ROM. CyanogenMod has a ROM but it's not fully up to speed yet. It would be updated as the OTA updates rolled out and the source code was released. You wouldn't get them as fast, but what you got would probably be better for your needs.

    Having said that, since the first update JUST rolled out, I wouldn't worry about a second one for a while. A standard root would probably do you fine.

    The first one's not for an Incredible. That's geared more towards the Droid 1. The other two, yes, should work for the Inc.

    There should be a whole subforum dedicated to rooting the Inc.

    The discussion of Hacking the Stock VZW installed Mobile Hotspot Feature is not allowed as it hacks a feature that was set in place to make money and this is considered pirating -
