    share internet from iPhone to Macbook on StraightTalk

    I know that Personal HotSpot is disabled on the iPhone for StraightTalk. I would like to be able to plug in USB my iPhone to my MacBook and check emails. etc. Any one has some suggestions how to go about it? no jail breaking. paid apps is ok as long as it works

    So I have the Unlimited plan, if I purchase the hotspot device can I just swap the sim from my phone to it and it will work just to use data? also will need an adapter for the nano sim I persume the device will require regular size sim. Anybody tried this?

    you could try that but it depends on what sim you have AT&T or T mobile and what network the hotspot runs on.

    The only way you can do it without another device is with a jailbreak. You should do some research for your phone. All current versions of iOS are jail breakable and very easy. You pay $5 for the one time app in Cydia called tether me and that's it. It enables the personal hot spot menu in your phone.

    Otherwise your other option would be to for another external device.
