Shocked to know from tech support it is to get rid on the hot spot for free. Does anyone have more info about update in 10 days?

I still haven't seen any pricing anywhere for the 4g mobile broadband

 

With 2 devices just getting launched recently, I wouldn't be suprised if it gets extended again

 

I'm kind of wondering as well though.. if it is decent price for the right amount I might have to get it

He said updates fix multiple things. But what a coincidence though.

Hopefully gingerbread. Maybe they don't want to get us hopes up. He also said rebooting is not a known issue. What a joke VZW look all over here.

i'm going to guess it will be the same pricing. $20/month for up to 2 gigs.

Maybe they will continue free because charge is having problems somewhat I heard. Guessing though. I hope its more for all these troubles. I think it should be different because I could get that with any phone 4g is different. It said in the promotion press release $20 4 2gigs is not available for 4g.

I think you may be right, but I'm hoping you're wrong. I think they'd be making a mistake to charge us as much as they do for the 4G phones, give us the speed of their 4G-LTE network and then give us the same data deal as they do for 3G. I think people are going to be burning up a lot more data at the 4G speed. I have to tether my laptop to my TBolt at work to get on the internet and I can go through 2 Gigs in about 2 weeks using the 4G hotpsot. I really like my TBolt, but at $20.00 for 2 Gigs and $20.00 for each Gig over that, I can't afford to use it.

yeah....but it's not intended to be your primary source for online access. i think it's more for the casual user with a laptop or pc that only uses the web once in a while. if you're using a laptop at work, then it's not feasible. you need a real internet plan. this is why they'll have to charge and cap the data. if it remained free, or was extremely cheap, we would all drop our dsl, cable, air cards, etc......and crush their network.

Gina, 

The unlimited hotspot on the Thunderbolt is a limited time promotion and expires 6/15. We do not have the new pricing for the hotspot at this time.
