How to set up your device as a mobile hotspot to share your data connection with Wi-Fi-capable devices.



  1. Using mobile hotspot requires an eligible data plan or Mobile Share. Devices connected to your mobile hotspot use data from your plan. Overage charges apply if the included monthly data allowance is exceeded. Performance may vary depending on the number of devices connected and other factors. If you do not use a password, others will be able to use your mobile hotspot connection.
    Note: Eligible data plan required, learn more.
