Unlimited pre paid & hot spot
Hello,
I have the unlimited prepaid plan (60$/month, unlimited texts & calls, 2Gb of data).
4G is working great but when I try to activate the personal hotspot on my iPhone it asks me to call to activate the option or go to the AT&T website. I didn't find anything related to tethering in my options so I was wondering if someone figured this one out...

Thank you !

Unfortunately with the PrePaid plans, tethering is not allowed. You won't be able to create a Hot Spot with a PrePaid device.  Smiley Sad

Why is that? is there any other way to avail the hotspot option? like maybe paying for it?

Okay thank's... That's too bad because you can do it with any Android device or jailbroken iPhone.
