Default Portable Hotspot on an LG Thrill

Hey guys,

So, I've been an iSlave for a while and I've finally shook them off and got an android. It's through AT&T, and the three data plans that were offered to me were 200MB (nope) 3GB, and 5GB + mobile hotspot services. But, my phone has an option for this anyway, even though I didn't get the expensive plan that allows its use, supposedly. I looked closer and saw that they have data plans with mobile hotspot stuff in both 3GB and 5GB quantities, but the one I have doesn't say a word about using this feature. My question is, if I use this, are they going to charge the hell out of me for it?

My phone is an unrooted LG Thrill if that's helpful in any way.

The phone has the app for it pre-installed. But, without the plan, it will not work and tell you that you need the plan. It's like an advertisement.

There are ROMs that will allow you to use it without having a plan, although I wouldn't tether a laptop or desktop to it, or do it very often.

I use mine in the car sometimes so my wife can use the iPad while I drive, or to purchase a book on my Nook when i'm away from wifi, things like that have been fine for me.

You cant use it uless you purches the tethering plan but if you would want to use it u can set an apn to be able to use the tethering with out the plan. As long as you dont go over your limit you wont get charged extra because you are useing your data

Take the LG Optimus 3D, put it on AT&T's network, and what do you have? The LG Thrill 4G. Inside the Thrill 4G is identical to the Optimus 3D... and that's a great thing. With both 3D recording of pictures and videos and the ability to ... Read More
