IS there a app to make iphone 4s a hotspot

Hi,

I have listed some information below to help your with Sprint hotspot on the iPhone 4S:

Set Up as a Wi-Fi Hotspot

From the home screen, tap Settings.

Note: Sprint requires a separate Mobile Hotspot service plan  in order to use this device as a mobile hotspot.

Data usage without a data add-on or data-included plan is 3 cents/KB. Please  consult your service plan for details. International Data roaming may incur  additional charges.

Sprint coverage and rates are subject to change at any time without notice.  Check www.sprint.com/international for current rates and coverage  prior to travel. Not all devices are capable of roaming everywhere service is  available; contact Sprint Worldwide Care for details.

Scroll to and tap General.

Tap Network.

Tap Set Up Personal Hotspot.

Tap the Wi-Fi Password field.

Enter the desired Password and tap Done.

Note: This is the password others will use to connect to the personal hotspot.

Tap the Personal Hotspot switch to enable the feature.

Tap the Personal Hotspot switch to enable the feature.

Thank you for your choosing Sprint,

----George

3 cents a KB?  What the??????

So 2 GB's will cost you about $60,000?  Or am I doing some math wrong?

Please keep in mind that this is a casual usage price "without a data add-on" and would not be part of using your phone as a hotspot, since you would be required to have a plan that includes data and you would have the hotspot plan.

Data charges if going over the new 5gb cap is $.05/MB, Also if data roaming it's limited to 300MB, Which is NOT seperated from phone roaming data usage.

I knew it was $30 for 5 gigs/mo.  I am just curious as why the Spint rep would mention it being 3 cents/kb as opposed to recommending and telling the OP how to set it up for the $30/5gig plan?

I believe they had taken that information from official documentation, that refers to the default rate for casual use of data if a phone does not have a data plan.

So if you have a data plan it automatically sets you up for the $30/5gigs plan?

Whats the one day plans?

No, It's just a standard warning. If you want the HotSpot you have to subscribe. The "one day" plans are not really one day plans, But with Add ons they pro-rate the charges and they can be added/removed and only charged for the days activated.

And then there is the alternative Jailbreaking the phone and using MyWi, (which I will tell you now if you use this app and Sprint finds out about it, they have everyright to terminate your contract for not obiding by the terms and conditions of the contract). Now that I got the part that a moderator would have told you out of the way. When I had AT&T I used MyWi all the time, as of now I have no need for it but the choice is ultimately yours, Please note. It's not illegal to use this app nor is it illegal to jailbreak the phone, however, jailbreaking will void your warranty with apple (well worth it in my opinion) and using MyWi is considered a breach in contract with Sprint and, if caught, can get the hotspot automatically added to your account (at the least) or account terminated (at the extreme most). So far havent heard of Sprint finding anybody doing it but that doesnt mean anything. So up to you. I posted this so you would know your options.

Sprint - $30/mo 5GB

MyWi - $9.99 for the app and free afterwards - Unlimited tethering by wifi, usb, and bluetooth
