Isn't the Mifi hotspot like a separate phone line? My Samsung Mega supports up to eight devices without the added expense of a different line/device. I tether it using a USB cable to my laptop (hardwired) as it seems to be more reliable. FoxFi (PdaNet) is free. I haven't tried the Mifi so it may be better but I'm not sure why it would be. I thought it was good for those whose phone doesn't support a hotspot.

My S3 will only tether for 30 minutes (or something like that) and then disconnects and asks me to buy the full version. I can just reconnect and continue doing this but it's a hassle. Otherwise you're correct they are essentially the same.

I paid for the full version of PdaNet as I use it on the road all the time and it was cheap. One can also transfer it to other phones. All it is is a license key. Save the email they send you with the key as you will need it every time you upgrade your phone or want to install it on another phone. I put it on the wife's phone as well. She loves it as she travels some to.

I found this out this past Summer. HUGE bill!
Part of the problem was that I cancelled the international data plan upon re-entering the US but we camped at Thousand Islands State Park in New York which is only about 100 yards from the Canadian border. So, we picked up service from the Canadian side and they nicked me pretty good.
