    Uh Oh, I take back my answer...this morning, when I turned on Hot Spot on my Verizon phone, I got the message:

    --------------------------------
    "No Sharing Service"
    Sharing an internet connection requires an addition to your mobile service plan. Contact your carrier for help"
    --------------------------------

    I'm following up with them later today...

    I just got my pre last week on Verizon and the mobile hotspot was free... in fact that was one of the selling points for me because on the android devices you have to pay for it.

    re-start your phone and try again. it is automatically added to your service at no charge, so it just had a hiccup.

    Agreed. My VZW Pre+ came with MHS pre-installed and in the launcher, though I've never used it.

    Just now tried it out to see if it works, and had no problems. Fired it up (there was a message stating that you needed a data package or something), set up a pass phrase, then connected with my netbook.

    I've gotten that before too. Closing and restarting MHS will normally clear it.

    But back to the OP. MHS on Verizon is free, for up to 5GB, but there is still a charge for the data plan with the Pre+, I think that is what the OP was questioning. I pay $29 monthly for unlimited, but I think Verizon no longer offers this plan anymore.

    yeah...I found that out the hard way, and my bill was $57 higher!

    I don't think anyone has explitly mentioned this in this thread but *you must have a data plan already* I think this confuses people. If you have a data plan there is no *additional* charge to use mobile hot spot.

    Mine was $200 higher. Customer service can only reduce the bill by 50% so I have get it straightened out at the store where I got the phone to reduce the bill since they never explained the 5GB limit.
