Now that's funny. You pay for 2 and 2 eat there. Your newborn isn't eating off a plate right? Come on be serious here... If the kid can eat off the plate or be fed food you bet your bottom dollar you'd have to pay something. That's the only reason why you used a newborn over someone older.
The device has the capability to tether and provide a hotspot.
It's a useless capability without service. Just like the device can make voice calls, but that capability is useless without the corresponding service.
By this logic, since the phone can make calls, you should be able to make calls without buying a voice plan. Because the phone has the capability to do so.
