    I'm sure this is discussed somewhere else, but I was wondering if the hotspot for the verizon pre is free? I know back in April it was, but I just had a friend of mine purchase a pre on verizon (I'm on Sprint) and they told him in the store that the hotspot wasn't free and he would get charged a data package for getting the hotspot. What's the deal with this. Is it free or not? I'm so confused. I told him originally it was, but now I'm not sure and I don't want to give him the wrong info and him end up with a huge charge on his next bill.

    Also do you get it through your verizon account or is it just an app you download. Sorry like I said I'm on Sprint so I'm not sure of these things.

    awesome thanks guys. I just didn't want to give her the wrong information and her end up with a weird charge. I let her know and she's gonna check her account this evening. Is it just a box that you check on the account or something? Also does it begin working immediately or does it wait until next billing cycle?

    Is that $15 a month or a one time fee?

    She said she went on to her account this morning and searched for it but couldn't find it anywhere.

    You go to change or add to your plan. It's still free.

    It is still free, but up to 5 GB/month, so MAKE SURE she checks her usage from time to time! she will get charged if she goes over the 5GB limit.

    It's kind of amazing and amusing to me that people keep buying MyTether, I don't think the dev has shown his face for months.

    This will, of course, require the use of WOSQI and a couple of programs/services.

    I see they removed the link to the patched MHS...lemme see.

    same here.

    @ cowgirl not really sure if we're allowed to discuss it any more. I think it's okay but can't provide links. It is not with mytether. just go to you tube and search install mobile hotspot on sprint pre. You should find everything there.

    By the way thanks everyone I'll have her check the change or add to plan area on her account.

    Does MyTether use the phone data or does that also get registered on the 5GB MHS limit?

    MyTether uses the phone data, so it has no 5GB limit.
