If you're running a MacBook with a recent OS, it's very conservative when it's connected to an iPhone and skips a lot of background tasks (the same if you tether an iPad to the iPhone), the WiFi icon actually shows up different.
If you use a linux, android or windows computer/tablet you might want to check into adjusting some settings so it doesn't download big things int he bbackground automatically.
@Drereed Which plan is the "current plan"?
No extra fee for the service of hotspoting.
Watch it though, data can go REALLY fast when you tether!
