So I was thinking of adding a Verizon MiFi. I have unlimited data now on my phone. The chat went down as expected: Jennifer P.: Your phone does have the capability to be used as a mobile hotspot. That service is $20 for 2GB per month, if you use your phone. If you add a new line, with the mifi device, the minimum plan available would be 5GB for $50 per month. me: why wouldn't it be unlimited? i already have unlimited data with my phone Jennifer P.: Because it is not the same as the data on the phone. This data is not used for your phone. It is used for other devices. Actually, I did think I would have unlimited data for this. What are my *legal* options? I know I can tether and may end up doing that, but don't want to end up in a situation where I get throttled or charged a bajillion.
