Hotspot

Sorry if this is a repeated topic, but having a hard time finding a definite answer.

 

I have a Galaxy Nexus, and if I turn on hotspot, will Rogers charge me for tethering, or will it simply use my regular data plan with no extra charges? Thanks!

Re: Hotspot

If you already have a data plan that you will not be charged anything extra for enabling the Mobile AP (aka Hotspot). Any usage will be deducted from your data plan on your smartphone plan. Only way you will be charged extra is if you go over your data plan allowance.

 

In addition you typically will need at least a 1GB data plan to be able to use this feature.

 

Hope this helps.

Cheers!

Re: Hotspot (Galaxy)

Not sure whether it applies to other Android phones.. but I finally figured out that the reason my S4 Hotspot wasn't working was b/c I was subscribed to Rogers One Number (VOIP) service.  So, just call Rogers to remove that and your phone's Hotspot will work.

 

Before the fix, my phone itself would also lose Internet connectivity (for myself) when the Hotspot was turned on for nearby phones.

Hello garfield_h20


I heard this only for the Galaxy S line, my Note 3 and Lg G2 work fine with Rogers One Number.


Glad to see it worked after doing that.

My HTC ONE and Galaxy Note 8.0 work perfectly with mobile hotspot and I have One Number running on my account and devices.

Hello Nerds2You


Exactly! It could just be the S4 causing this or something. My Note 3 works fine with it.
