    grandfathered unlimited mobile hotspot gone?

    I usually leave tethering turned off on my iPhone until I need it, then I go to My Verizon app, log into my account and turn it on. Today I went to do this and the mobile hotspot tethering option was gone (in the My Verizon app) and I cannot find it on the Verizon web site either.
    Is this a new policy of Verizon's to remove mobile hotspot for grandfathered unlimited plan users?

    That's the point of my post -- under 'manage features' in My Verizon app, the mobile hotspot option is GONE.
    I poked around to see if they moved it elsewhere but couldn't find it.
    I logged on to my account via a web browser and can't find the option to add the feature anymore either.

    Tried both 'My Verizon' app on iPhone and the Verizon web site through a desktop computer web browser.
    Cannot find 'mobile hotspot' as an option to add to my account anymore. I used to do this all the time so I know what to look for. Either it's been moved (well hidden) or, I suspect, completely removed for grandfathered unlimited customers.
    Are you grandfathered unlimited? Do you still have the option?

    I had enabled mobile hotspot for a road trip just a couple weeks ago this way and turned it off when I returned. Now the option is gone.

    Looks like it's back again. I'd add it while you can and leave it there and hope that when they do remove it they leave it for those that have it turned on.

    Some people retained it due to their ECPD. The rest lost it but it's back for now.
