How do I go about using my iPhone 6 Plus to connect to the internet. I replaced my Blackberry and I just received my iPhone 6+. I used to use my Blackberry to tether my work laptop. I have a 3G Mobile Share plan. Do I need to change my plan to the 5G Data Share plan or can I use my iPhone as a hotspot for my laptop using the Mobile Share plan?

On any of the mobile share data plans, tethering is allowed. Go to the Settings - Personal Hotspot and turn it on.

I'm with you on this. I've had unlimited data for years and mine won't work as a hotspot unless I change my plan. Sounds like a scam.

@Kiwi16 unlimited data is unlimited, but it is one device only. You are not charged extra if using ATT network. No one said you can use your ATT plan anywhere in the world. If you travel out of the US, of course you are charged. Just like any other customer on any other plan.

It is unlimited. You can literally use as much data as you want ON THE DEVICE with the data. No whether that data is at full LTE speeds or throttled is a different story. However unlimited data at 128 kilobits per second is still unlimited. Sharing via tethering is adding a new, different device into the fray. It's not a single device in that instance but multiple points of demarcation being added to the network.
