Smartphone Mobile HotSpot (SMHS) is a feature that lets you share your phone's Internet connection with up to 10 Wi-Fi-enabled devices. You can also connect using USB or Bluetooth. While tethered, you can still make or receive calls and text messages. Setting up your hotspot is easy! It's included with our Simple Choice™ Plans as well as some of our older unlimited talk, text, and web plans.
If you're going to be sharing your data connection, make sure you have the right data plan. Check out our data calculator to find the right fit for you. SMHS only works in 4G and 4G LTE coverage. View our coverage map.
If you reach your allotment on your SMHS unlimited high-speed (4G LTE) data, your data speed is reduced. For example, if you're on the Simple Choice unlimited, high-speed 4G LTE plan, and you reach your 14 GB SMHS allotment, your data won't stop, you'll just experience slower speeds.
To use Smartphone Mobile HotSpot, you need:
Check the Devices page for setup steps. Select your phone, then look for Mobile hotspot or Tethering under Media & Internet.
