How do I use an iPhone 6 as a Mi-Fi device?

I'm trying to do some research for my boss. She has an iPhone 6. She's going on a retreat but wants to either use her phone as a MiFi device to access internet. Can she do that? How and what is the charge? Or does she need to actually BUY a MiFi device and add to her contract?

Thank you!

Francesca, I want to ensure your boss is able to connect her devices to the internet while she’s away at her retreat.

The iPhone 6 has a cool feature called Personal Hotspot that will allow her to use her iPhone 6 data as a Wi-Fi connection to share with other Wi-Fi capable devices.  Here’s a link with instructions for using the Personal Hotspot feature: http://vz.to/1S7aG9W.

What she wants to do is use the hot spot feature on her phone. 

IF her account is a tiered data plan, she can just turn it on and it uses her existing data plan.

Unlimited data plans do not have the option to use the hot spot.
