Verizon offers tablet users 300MB of data for $5 a day
If you own a tablet and need to hook it up to a cellular network sporadically, you might want to consider Verizon;s new $5 "Daily Plan". This gives you 300MB of data over 24 hours. In other words, for one day you can use up to 300MB of the sweet stuff and the plan is done once you used up all of the 300MB or after 24 hours.

The new "Daily Plan" is available to use on all of Verizon's connected devices including tablets and the Samsung Galaxy Camera. You can use the plan for as many days in a row as you want, but at some point you might as well pay $10 to add the tablet to a Share Everything plan, or just sign up for a monthly plan for the slate. And it isn't nearly as good as the free 200MB a month that T-Mobile is giving tablet users who are T-Mobile customers. Heck, the tablets don't even have to have been purchased from T-Mobile.

If you're a Verizon customer, this is a way to hook up a tablet that you normally use with a Wi-Fi network. Perhaps you're visiting your in-laws for the day and they don't have Wi-Fi. Instead if leaving your tablet at home, you could buy the 300MB of data from Big Red to tide you over until you return home later that evening.

I think mobile hotspot costs more. I think its $20. Which to me is like stealing since the phone is capable to do it at no extra cost to them. They're just double dipping on every device that requires you to add to a share everything plan. In which its still your data that you're already paying for. Money stealing greedy bastards.

That was just when there was still unlimited or for people still grandfathered in like myself. If you have share everything it's included.

You can down load an app called Foxfi through the play store for free and use it to use the mobile hotspot on your phone for free (paying nothing more to verizon). The app is free but comes with a limit at which time you have to close the app and restart or you could upgrade to Foxfi Pro for like $7 and that has unlimited usage. Either way it is another way to use your data and stick it to vzw.
