Default stupid question about T-Mobile unlimted data plans & hot-spots

Please Login to Remove!

I know I can use my BB Pearl to tether my laptop via the T-mobile unlimited data plan.

My question is - does the BB T-mobile unlimited data plan also entitle me to free usage of their wifi hot-spots?

Silly question I know but would appreciate confirmation either way. Thanks!

No it does not. It can be added on to any T-Mobile account for $20 a month for Unlimited WiFi hotspot access.

If it's not listed as a feature you can safely assume that it's not included.

It doesn't come with Hotspot. It cost extra if you want it.

I don't think it cost $20 extra though. I have to double check on that.

If it does, you may want to get Wing instead. With Wing data plan, you pay $10 extra and it comes with Hotspots.

It was $20 back when I was with TMO. That's figuring in the discount that they give you for having a plan with them. Otherwise it was about $30/mo.
