Wow! Lots of data. To turn on hotspot you have to pay for it correct? Mine is not jail broken.

Depends on your plan and provider. If you switch to one of the new "family sharing" plans, the hot spot is included. Otherwise, it's an extra charge.

Right. There aren't too many unlimited data plans floating around anymore on AT&T and Verizon. Those (like you, I assume) hang onto them dearly!

I was speaking to the family share plan and the hotspot. It's an included feature when you move to that plan unlike the individual plan where it's a separate upgrade (unless you jailbreak your iPhone and not everyone wants to do that).

You may know this and choose to do so anyway, but for other readers- bear in mind that jailbreaking your phone is in violation of Apple's warranty program and using a hotspot when you're not specifically paying for one from your carrier is typically a violation of your mobile contract. It's silly because data should be data and as long as you're paying for it, it should be yours to freely decide how you want to use it- but it is what it is.

In Texas, and I suspect in most other states, it's more than a violation of your contract, it's a crime. If you do it long enough, you could go to jail. If you want to commit a crime, I don't think you should be posting about doing it in a public forum.

Jail breaking your iPhone is not a crime. Unlocking the iPhone to use in other carriers is a crime. I think everyone is confused.

Agreed, jailbreaking your iPhone is not.

I think Barry's comment isn't about jailbreaking the phone - I believe it is about using your phone as a hotspot when you're not paying for it.
