I used to use the data on my iphone to use my iPad when I was with a different carrier now that switched to Verizon and using iPhone 6 plus I cant use it as a wifi hotspot anymore. Called Verizon but not much help. Is there anyway I can still use my phone as wifi hotspot? Please help.

Hi AlexaW! Help has arrived! My apologies you didn't receive the assistance you deserve when you called us directly. Great news! You can certainly use your iPhone 6 Plus as a hotspot to connect your other devices such as tablets, laptops, etc.. What type of plan do you have currently? With all of our More Everything Plans, the mobile hotspot is included.

You'll go to your iPhone 6 Plus and go to Settings > Personal Hotspot > Tap on the button to turn on > and then you'll be able to see the Wi-Fi (mobile hotspot) connection on your tablet, etc.. If you are not on the More Everything Plan, then we can add on the mobile hotspot feature for you. Keep us posted! Thanks so much for being our loyal customer!

Yes. I currently have the hotspot feature active with my 6 plus. You should be able to activate it via My Verizon (it's $29.99 or at least that's what it is with my unlimited data plan).
