Can I use my Consumer Cellular phone for mobile hotspot tethering?

On your blog of October, 2017,  you state  once activated, my phone can be used as a hotspot.  (

Your terms and conditions state "... plans (unless specifically designated for tethering usage) cannot be used for any applications that tether the device (through use of, including without limitation, connection kits, other phone/smartphone to computer accessories, BLUETOOTH® or any other wireless technology) to Personal Computers (including without limitation, laptops), or other equipment for any purpose."

Which is it? 

Hi Chele. On that blog post link you included, it looks like a Consumer Cellular staff is replying. According to her replies, mobile hotspot should work fine on your phone. But it is only recommended when a Wi-Fi network is unavailable to save your data.
