    G6 Plus VZW prepaid.

    Hey everyone quick question. I have a new LG G6 Plus on Verizon prepaid. Its not a Verizon branded phone. I want to upgrade my plan to unlimited. With this being a unlocked non Verizon branded phone would I be able to use mobile hotspot with out it blocking me? Any help would be great. Thank you everyone.

    VZW prepaid unlimited data plan doesn't support the mobile hotspot.

    I know it doesn't support it. But I dont have a vzw branded phone so was hoping I can still turn it on and use it.

    I assume the hotspot is currently working on whatever plan you're currently on? When you enable your hotspot now do you see a quick window that says "checking subscription status. Please wait?" If so, I doubt it would work natively.

    Is your phone rooted? My guess is you'd need a third-party app like PdaNet+ or something similar.

    even though your phone is unlocked, it still checks for a subscription check for hotspot use. you would need to root your phone and edit the prop file. or use something like fox fi or pda-net

    So you want to scam the system? The pan doesn't include hotspot. If you want an unlimited plan with hotspot get postpaid.

    If the phone is not branded by any carrier, the hotspot may work. Have you tried it?

    My unbranded Moto G6 hotspot works fine with Tracfone-Verizon.

    If it works on a limited plan, it should work on an unlimited plan. Verizon will be able to detect that you are hotspotting. They may warn you or suspend or terminate your account. That is almost guaranteed if you do a lot. I do not know the Terms of Service for Vz Prepaid unlimited.

    my moto G5s plus is unlocked & not branded by any carrier and it still checks for hotspot subscription. i believe tracfone Verizon allows hotspot use but not advertise it.
