its a paid service for the $50 and $60 plan.just be happy it lets you connect to anything since you aint paying for it.

dont think you understood what i said.you can only get the hotspot paid service to open up all sites on the $50 and $60 plan.if you are on the unlimited plans you can not add the hotspot to your plan but for whatever reason you can still connect to a few sites.

Once you root the phone... (ahem)... you can use Barnacle to provide 4G services to your tablet, PC or local network. I've done that - as a test - with my Optimus-M (before it was stolen). Slow at 3G speeds, but with the Motion, it should rock if you get a good connection.

Barnacle is an easy to use program... once you're rooted.

Foxfi , Barnacle , Wifi Tether , PDAnet , All of these work great on any phone , of course allmost always 1 only will work , Bluetooth mode is better and stable for internet , but that is just a opinion but it is harder to set up for me (Running my freakin Windows 8 Consumer Preview , Never got Windows 8 Pro Yet , Or tested Windows 9 Exclusive Devoloper Edition)
Windows 8 is hard to set up with bluetooth , anyways , try many programs with root AND you WILL find out , Go Fellow Motioner (Getting my motion today! , Hard to wait!)

The reason there is no plan for the unlimited is THAT YOU PAY FOR UNLIMITED.

Just like with the connect, Switch your UA and you're golden except you don't need a third party app this time around.

Worked for me.

You should be able to tether using the native hotspot function of the phone but hey if it ain't broke don't fix it.

Enjoy.
