I just hung up with Verizon. This is the info I was told. EXISTING Verizon 4G customers who had service (4G only) prior to July 7th have the option of adding a $30 unlimited data Mobile Hotspot feature to their existing $29.99 data plan. The $20, 2gig Mobile Hotspot option is no longer available to 4G customers. Needless to say, I signed up for the unlimited $30 mobile hotspot!! New customers, as of July 7th are subject to the new tiered data plan. This is special promotion pricing for 4G customers who already had the $29.99 unlimited data plan on their phone. You may need to tell the Verizon person this. The person I spoke with had to do some digging to find it in her computer.
