Verizon’s unlimited 4G Mobile Hotspot was introduced in a trial version with the HTC ThunderBolt allowing the user to tether up to 8 devices on the carrier’s blazing fast LTE network and the trial was extended through June 16th to cover the Samsung DROID Charge, but come June 16th the trial feature will be disabled through a software update, according to an anonymous tipster.
Currently, Big Red offers a $20 for 2GB of mobile data plan for its 3G smartphones and while our tipster didn’t know about the exact pricing of the 4G Mobile Hotspot, he quoted “a hot news and announcement” page confirming that the cost for 4G phones will not be the same.
Users who wish to continue using the service will receive a message requiring them to contact their system administrator in case they want to continue using the service. We’ve heard rumors about a $29.99 price tag for unlimited use of the feature, considerably cheaper than the MiFi plans running at $50 for 5GB and $80 for 10GB. Could it be true and would you use it at such a price? Feel free to give us your two cents in the comments below.
