Verizon is extending its free mobile hotspot functionality with its 4G LTE smartphones
Already, we’ve seen Big Red extend the free mobile hotspot trial to June 16th, but they’re once again pushing it to the later date of July 6. Naturally, this will undoubtedly ring a bell with existing customers with 4G LTE smartphones – like the recent LG Revolution. As much as some people out there are hoping to see it extended even further, those who wish to continue tethering will have to shell out some kind of monthly fee – though, the actual pricing is still unknown at this point. However, it’s known that a software update will be pushed out some time around July 6, where upon installation, will remove the mobile hotspot offer.
In the meantime, feel free to continue using that ever-useful feature without worries – especially when Verizon’s 4G LTE network is wickedly fast.

True but i would love to have them leave it for free... you know how well they would do with great phones coming out... they would attract sooo many customers..
