    I would think that you can turn it on and off, but I would suggest keeping it on for a month, because if you just use it for a week on, then a week off you can rack up some pro-ration charges out the butt! You would have to go onlne, call, or go to the store to remove the feature from your plan. Adding it should be as simple as turning on the hot spot.

    Thanks - Since I am retired we take lots of long RV trips, while more and more campgrounds have WIFI there are still some that don't. Keeping it on for a month sounds like a plan.

    You can contact Verizon and have them turn it on and off at will. Both data and price are prorated for the number of days you have it on. At $20/month, it comes out to about $0.67/day so for a weekend here and there, it's pretty cheap. You can even tell Verizon when to turn it off when you call them to turn it on so you can save a call later.

    I always ask the CSR to submit a feature request to add this capability to MyVerizon so I don't have to call each time.

    Use caution when not activating it for a full month. Sure it might be .67 a day, so a weekend would cost $1.34 plus your tax, but don't forget you are also pro-rating your allowance. So that would give you just over 136MB of use. If you don't plan on using it much, then you are set. But if you get on and start browsing away thinking you have the full 2GB for $1.34, you'll get an unpleasant surprise at the end of the month.

    Root it and use Wifi Tether.
    Be done with the Verizon surcharge.
