I really wish verizon would offer this for free. It would be a prefect way for them to say, suck it at&t we can handle all of the extra 3G. I really dont wanna pay for this, but if it was free..well then i would consider buying a Wi-fi iPad and use my hotspot so i could use it almost anywhere.

Yea I too was hoping this was free, but it is a good thing that you can add it or take it off when you want. About the jailbreak thing.....What is the pros and cons to a jailbroken iphone? I hear or see a lot of people with them jailbroken, so whats bad about it? And is a free hotspot avaliable in a a jailbroken phone?

I have MHS free right now with my Palm Pre Plus on my VZW plan, probably cause they wanted to get rid of the Palm Pre inventory. It is a feature I love and when I travel to places that charge for wifi access, the feature really shines for me. Sure not the fastest. But fast enough when you need it...
MHS was the feature the one feature that was a dealbreaker for me if it was not available on the VZW iPhone. I know that sounds silly, but I do happen to really like my Palm Pre. But like most of you, have always wanted an iPhone. I love my iPad and all my iPod devices. Would like to see if I could possibly be grandfathered in with the free MHS since I have it now for free. Prob not, but wishful thinking.
Guess more reason for me to hold out on next iPhone offering later this year or even next year.

Anyone know what the range of the MHS will be? How far around the phone will it work? great for traveling. Hotels charge about $12 a day for Wifi, wouldnt mind adding it for the month for a trip and letting other people with my use it. Curious if it will work acroos the hall in a hotel.
