    It's not TF, it's Verizon and Apple. TF doesn't control the account flag at Verizon that allows/disallows hotspots, along with Apple adding the check in iOS at Verizon's request.

    Put that SIM in an unlocked Android and hotspots will work fine.

    I would be interested in seeing what happens with a TotalWireless SIM since they say hotspot is allowed.

    I got a pm from "Tracfone Alex" asking if I got the issue of transferring my balances to my wife's phone resolved. He provided me with links to chat and the main customer service phone number. I didn't know he was still watching this forum....

    Yeah, me too. If Tracfone would allow hotspot there would be no issue for me. I don't like the idea of spending $35/month for cellular (even though I'd be dropping my $30/month internet bill) and I really don't have a clue as to what my data usage is for banking and bill pay and a little surfing. I don't stream video or music so I'm thinking it isn't much. I just don't want to lose my balances when I could punt them to wife's phone. Oh well....
