***Announcement: Early next week, we’ll be merging the current Fios and Wireless Communities into the all new Verizon Community!

The hotspot data usage is counted against the overall data usage, but shouldn't affect the phone only data.

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

We live and breath by these apps, so I know the importance of getting them to work, Quadmom98. What happens when your daughter tries to use Whatsapp or other apps? Do they work when she’s on wi-fi?
 When she uses the My Verizon app, how much data does it show that’s been used this month?
