Inorder to use Mobile Hotspot on your iPhone, you got to have either one of these plans $19.99 Sprint Mobile Hotspot - 2GB or $49.99 Sprint Mobile Hotspot - 6GB.
Use the following steps to set up Personal Hotspot:
1.Tap Settings > General > Network
2.Tap Personal Hotspot and turn it on:
3.Choose whether to enable Bluetooth or Wi-Fi and USB (Wi-Fi requires iPhone 4 or later, or iPad (3rd generation) Wi-Fi + Cellular).
4.After configuring Personal Hotspot, you can directly access the settings from Settings > Personal Hotspot.
Hope this helps
Can I add one of the sprint mobile hotspots plans, to my existing plan on my account on the sprint website or do I have to call sprint. 2nd question: is the charge based on actual usage or a flat monthly charge. If I only had hotspot turned on for 10 days out of the month, would I still have to pay for a full month? Thank you in advance
Thanks for reaching out to us regarding your hotspot concerns. How was the hotspot service added, over the phone with a rep or via sprint.com? The services may not have registered with the device yet, try an attempt to re-register onto the network by Updating the Data Profile (from dialing screen press ##UPDATE# then tap Call). After registration has completed try the steps again to enabled Hotspot. Let me know if the device is still asking to buy the hotspot service.
