I am located in Washington DC. The plan i use is:
Mobile Share Value Plan 2GB $40.00
Mobile Share Value Smartphone 4G LTE w/ VVM $40.00
Discount for Mobile Share Value Savings−$15.00
International Roaming - Expanded $0.00
Total Monthly Plan Charges $65.00
Just myself on the plan, i used to pay almost $90 for the old 3GB, 450 min talk, unlimited text, plan from long ago but i was just looking around and found this new plan (new to me at least) which suits me well. I don't know why i got the -$15 discount but it brings it down to $65, and i got the S5 monthly phone payment plan for $25/month. essentially paying the same i've always been with AT&T.
i am not sure if this new plan i am using allows wifi tethering but it works for me. I have disabled every AT&T service/app from my phone as well. Just sharing my experience.
Can anyone else confirm that it's most likely that Mobile Share Value Plans allow tethering/wi-fi hotspot from the S5?
