    What are some solutions for having voice, text, and data and having a hotspot beyond some very low limit on the hotspot data cap? Are there all in ones? Heck, I can't even articulate what I'm trying to ask!

    I mean, I have a cheap cell phone plan right now and I usually burn the hotspot cap early in the billing period. Are there any truly unlimited data plans along with voice and text out there?

    I use Mint Mobile for my hotspot. I have the 12gb per month plan for 3 months at a total cost of $75. Not sure if I will renew it because there seems to be an overload on the network whenever I want to stream video. The only time it works fast is really early in the morning or really late at night.

    H2O wireless has a 30gb a month "unlimited" plan for around $60 a month. They are an AT&T reseller.

    I have Sprint unlimited.

    Two phones including taxes are 160 a month.

    I use Google Navigation constantly. Then I use a hotspot for my laptop.

    When I'm not navigating or doing billing I'm listening to YouTube or watching movies or looking for loads.

    I use my phone basically 24 hours a day because a lot of times I'll put my headphones on and listen to a podcast and fall asleep to it.

    The only downside is that Sprint says during peak times over a certain amount you may get slow down a little. I don't think I've experienced that yet although I use crazy amounts of internet.

    I have been in a few spots where my phone didn't work as well I suppose because of coverage. Actually my phone worked but there was some where I was at that my internet was sketchy.

    And also when I'm home I stream HDMI to my TV.
    D.Tibbitt and Dieselboss Thank this.

    Verizon has a$90 unlimited plan with 30GB of hotspot data. It might be the cheapest deal for using you phone data plus hotspot. You can look at getting a stand alone wifi data deal. Verizon has them still I believe, it just internet data box you get WiFi signal from it and you have internet. You would have pick and pay extra for data you use.

    I hear of RV people use this setup. Nomad Internet: The Largest & Best Rural Unlimited Internet

    I use Straight Talk for $55 a month with unlimited talk and 60GB of data on phone and 10GB of hotspot that never use. If you use lots of data you looking at $90 or something a month. Verizon usually has the best coverage nation
    wide. Verizon has coverage in Wyoming and North Dakota but only if your a verizon customer. I'm using on Straight Talk and it Verizon but it only verizon prepaid towers or Version own towers. Last time I look Verizon does not have cell towers in Wyoming but they have contacted with the local cell phone company that does. So Verizon customers have cell phone and data in Wyoming but people on company like Straight Talk don't have coverage in Wyoming because Verizon does not own the towers out their.

    I use Visible. Unlimited, uncapped, unthrottled, 4G internet on Verizon’s network for $40/mo. Use your phone as a hotspot linking with bluetooth. Limit of one linked device at a time.

    If you prefer wifi, get the Mofi router MOFI4500-4GXeLTE-SIM7_COMBO [MOFI4500-4GXeLTE-SIM7_COMBO] - $284.99, pop in your Visible sim and you’ll have a wifi connection in your truck or home wherever you can get a Verizon signal. Visible is owned by Verizon.

    Is that in addition to a phone plan?

    I'm still thoroughly confused.

    I use Straight talk as well. I seem to have already used the 10 gb hotspot limit....which is frustrating.

    I have been reading about Visible. Sounds pretty good. I wonder if you can "hot spot" your phone for internet without buying a router.
