Learn about personal mobile hotspots

Using your device as a mobile hotspot requires a compatible data plan.


ArticleDETAILED INFO
A personal mobile hotspot lets you connect (tether) a laptop, tablet, or other device to your mobile device and use your wireless plan’s data. Use of this feature requires a compatible data plan.

Did you get a notice about using your device as a mobile hotspot? That happens when we see that you're using a mobile hotspot without a compatible plan. Here’s what to do:
  • Switch to a different plan that includes the mobile hotspot feature, if you want to use mobile hotspots. Check out our plans
  • Keep your current plan, but make sure the devices on it aren’t being used as mobile hotspots.

For terms of service about using your device as a mobile hotspot, see section 6.2 in your Wireless Customer Agreement.
