Using iphone 5 as hotspot with family share plan?

I have been on a AC FAMILY SHAREPLAN 700 (which is no longer available) and just upgraded to an iphone from a flipphone last week.  At that time, I selected the 4G plan that allows me to use my iphone as a hotspot and a 1000 text plan.  The plan to enable hotspot cost more than just a standard data plan.  I just looked and this applies only to my line, not the other family lines.  So if I switch to the "4 GB Shared Data - Unlimited Talk & Text Share everything across all your devices." do I lose the hotspot capability for my iphone?  There is no plan option that calls out hotspot when I try to switch it online.  Thanks.

The Share Everything Plans include the mobile hotspot feature for all the lines on that account.  The data is shared between all the lines too.
