    I just purchased a new pre 2, should be here tomorrow...anyway ...I can't believe that big red is still giving away the free unlimited hotspot! This was news to me...and since I'm granfathered in with the unlimited data...my new touchpad can become more mobile!

    free with the pre plus. Not free on the Pre2

    you get unlimited data for phone traffic, but the hotspot traffic isn't free. Get preware and freetether instead.

    the app is free, USING the app will cost you.

    that rep is wrong. Here are the facts:

    free with the pre plus. Always will be.

    $20 for 2gb on the pre2. Always was, always will be.

    instead, get freetether from prepared, and it costs you nothing. Never has, never will.

    dicontinuing had nothing to do with it.

    Lord folks. Just do a com board swap, doctor it. Good to go. Verizon will never know the difference

    that's weird. I had a rep tell me as long as I stayed within the Palm family, I wouldn't lose my free MHS.

    the app is free, but using it requires an additional charge on your plan.

    According to the Verizon web site the Hot Spot is available with data plans starting at $50.00 for 4GB

    You are so correct. The app is free, mobile hotspot usage has a fee. When I upgraded to the Pre 2 earlier this year, I had the option to keep it if I wanted to pay the monthly fee.

    p.s. The voices in my head too say I want a Pre 3!
