Stylo 4 hotspot?

Postby flylow » Sat Aug 17, 2019 4:22 am

Just bought a Tracfone LG Stylo 4 (LML713DL). All over the Internet it is said that Tracfone doesn’t allow using their phones as a hotspot. Manual for LML713DL has instructions on how to use it as a hotspot. Settings are on the phone.

Is using the hotspot feature that comes on the Tracfone allowed? Seems strange that hotspot settings are included on it if it’s not allowed.

Q: Is the phone case Plastic or a Gel form. Also is this phone a hotspot? Thanks in advanced.
A: Hi. This is Jupiter from TracFone Wireless. The phone case that comes with this device is a gel type case. Please know that we do not allow Mobile Hotspot feature. That is a violation under our terms and conditions. Thanks for the inquiry.
