Galaxy Nexus - Built In WiFi Hotspot Charges???

Hi, I own a Galaxy Nexus phone that came with 4.1 JellyBean. I am loving it so far, and as I was looking through the settings, I noticed that there was an option to turn on WiFi hotspot. I wanted to test it out, so I turned it on briefly and it did not seem to open any pop up stating that I should call or go to the Verizon website to activate hotspot. Does this mean the Hotspot is free? Or will it go onto my bill automatically? (I'm just wondering if I should begin searching for a good Free WiFi hotspot app, because I would definitely rather use the one provided with the phone.)

Thanks, have a great day.

If you are on the Share Everything plan, wifi hotspot is included.  If you are on one of the grandfathered Family Share plans with tiered data, hotspot is $20 per month for 2 GB (for those who still have unlimited data, hotspot is $30).

Ok, thanks! I'll have to see what plan I am on right now, I believe it is share everything.

I do with my Nexus.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

I do unless I sign a new contract.
