The Verizon version of the iPhone is the first of to have the WiFi hotspot capability. Other devices on the Verizon lineup with this capability have an additional charge, so it should come as no surprise that the iPhone does as well.

If you go over that limit, it will cost you another $20 for each extra GB of data used. The iPhone can be used to provide internet for up to five devices at once, so if you want to use the feature proceed with caution
