    Normally you do, but who knows it may be included with a higher price data plan you have to pay for the iPhone.

    I think it remains to be seen if the Mobile Hotspot is included with the data plan, or an added feature cost... The last Palm devices on Verizon included the hotspot for no extra fee. If it's included... awesome!

    Price plans should be nothing different than Verizon does now - my voice plan + $30/month data is what I pay on my BB Tour.

    And, with Verizon CDMA, you won't be able to talk and use data at the same time.

    $30/month data is what smart phone users already pay on Verizon... no big deal.

    Simultaneous voice & data: Another red-herring, not a deal breaker as CDMA smart phone phone users have lived with that and those who truly need that have data solutions at their disposal that don't involve their smartphone.

    I thought I read $99 for 16G and $199 for 32G. Could be a moron though. However, I am excited. Had the BB Storm for 1.5 years waiting for this to finally occur. Yes, I still have a Storm ;-(
    I think that was a typo, on Verizon's website it says starting at $199, and the annoucement I read today said $199/16G $299/32G. I still have the Storm 1 as well, can't wait to get rid of it.

    chances are you will pay extra for the hotspot. I mean, why would you pay a high price for a data plan that includes mobile hotspot if you are not gonna use it.

    I say around $30 a month, maybe less if they want to stay competive (Sprint's hotspot phones cost an additional $30 a month for the hot spot feature and some phones, like my EVO can do up to 8 devices)
