    Mobile Hotspot when in Canada?

    Hi-
    If I have the $50 Smart plan and also add the Mobile Hotspot, can I use the Mobile Hotspot (tethering) when I'm in Canada? Cricket website seems to say no, chat told me yes, wondered if anyone has real world experience with it. I'm on a non-jailbroken iPhone 6. thanks.

    Thanks. Still looking for someone who has tried it, since I am getting conflicting answers from Cricket. Website says no, chat said yes. Zendesk email help has told me both no and yes.

    I am pretty sure that I have done it before. I will be in British Columbia in 1/2 day...early afternoon on Wednesday and I will check.

    If it works in the USA it will work in Canada. It's a flag on the phone that is either a 1 or a 0. This can even be changed without the carrier by the user and can be easy or hard depending on the device.

    OK I am on Annacis Island/Delta, British Columbia, Canada

    I am posting from my laptop computer connected to the internet via wifi hotspot from my Cricket phone. Phone is a Lumia 635 $.99 phone that I recently bought from cricketwireless.com. The status bar says 'Rogers Wireless LTE'.

    My plan is the grandfathered 20 gig 'Advanced' plan with $10 hotspot added.
