Hotspot is a great way to stay connected to the internet when you’re on the go. Using your device as a hotspot will allow other devices to connect to your network and use your phone as a Wi-Fi source as well.
How does hotspot work?
If you have a shared data plan and your device is hotspot capable, the feature will be built into your phone. Simply follow these steps to turn on hotspot:
|On an iPhone||On an Android|
Once the mobile hotspot is turned on – all data usage will show as hotspot usage. If you are roaming, the hotspot feature will not be accessible.
Keep in mind
- Your hotspot should not be used as a primary internet connection within your household.
- Using your device as a hotspot utilizes data – remember to turn your hotspot off when it is not in use! A $15/ per GB charge will be added if you exceed your data allotment.
- Individual CREDO Mobile data plans of 1GB or less will not have the option to utilize a device as a hotspot.
- Using your phone as a hotspot drains the battery quickly. If possible, keep your phone plugged in while using this feature.
