Why do I have to pay to enable and use the Hotspot feature on my iPhone 4S if I am already paying for Unlimited data? The Hotspot ability is a hardware feature of the device (like the GPS, the music player, or Siri) so charging to activate and use it seems very odd to me. I'm already paying for unlimited everything, so why sould it matter if I use the data directly on the device or run it through the device to another?

I'll explain since clearly you're having trouble. I. Early 2014 this thread was ressurected. Sprint freely responded right up until the person i was pointing out posted their excellent analogy. Then i stumbled on this thread, and once again ressurected it, but because i felt the afformentioned excellent anaology was a perfect way to explain my own feelings on the matter. Do you understand, now that i have broken it down, barny style?
did you notice the agents that were in the prior convos are no longer available due to changes in the last years? so resurrected or not its still a + - 4 year old topic which oddly enough there have been quite a few changes since then. my time stamp abilities are working just fine..i'll break it down a bit more precise for you next time..either way there is a 1+ year break off between those posts..the one the agent posted to was in 2012
the one responding to him?
quite a laps dont you think? heck they were already in the process of dumping Wimax for LTE by that point..or at least it was in the works.
and then theres your response
yet another 1+ year laps.
as you'll notice even the sprintcare agents avatars are grayed out..because..oh..its been quite a while and the original agents are no longer used..a new group is in use...starting a bit over a year ago. odd..so many changes in one thread that pushes back all the way to 2012
Dear obvious sprint employee,
You have missed my point entirely. The hotspot data rules are as opressive now as they were then. The garden hose analogy still perfectly describes the sittuation. I resurrected this old thread specifically to draw light on this. The fact that you missed the the clear message i was trying to relay just validates my point. The sprint reps in this thread were quick to jump on people that didnt understand the sittuation. But the second someone with a bit of technical knowledge said something they dipped.
and youre still missing what im saying..those agents "dipped" as you call it a couple years ago..years. as in they havent been active for again...a few years. and no matter what is said they STILL wont be active.
Thanks for reaching out. Please visit: https://www.sprint.com/en/shop/plans.html for all available plans and prices. Remember that this thread is very old and we now offer Hotspot with our unlimited plans.
HI Ariel3, It will depend on the plan, if the plan is with hotspot included, you will not be charged extra as well. I've sent you a private message in order for me to confirm the plan and if you are ben charged for it.
