Palm Pre Plus Hotspot/Data Plan

Hey, if I have the wireless hotspot function active (to allow family access to the internet), and I continue to access the internet from my phone, will the data I use from the phone take data out of my data plan or my wireless hotspot "data pool"?  The reason I ask is because I hear that on the iPhone, when the hotspot is active, the data used on the phone takes from the hotspot and not the data plan.

Hello Trekkie2063


5GB of Mobile Hotspot included on the Palm Pre Plus at no cost is a great feature! When the Smartphone is connected using Mobile Hotspot, all data sent or received, will be billed according to your 3G Mobile Hotspot feature. This applies to data transmitted through connected Wi-Fi devices and the Smartphone itself. The Smartphone data feature will become billable again once you turn off the Mobile Hotspot app. You can dial #DATA or access My Verizon to check your data usage.
