iPhones and smartphones

If you have an iPhone or smartphone, you can share data with other mobile devices on your account when each of these devices adds a share plan.

Share plans for the following devices are access-only and do not bring additional shareable data to the account:

  • Tablets
  • Mobile Internet keys
  • Mobile Internet hotspots

Tablets and mobile Internet devices

When a data share plan is added to a tablet or mobile Internet device, you can access shared data from the Unlimited Talk and Family Share plans on the account.

  • Tablets require a Tablet Data Share plan to access any shared data on the account.
  • Mobile Internet keys, and hotspot devices require a Mobile Internet Data Share plan to access any shared data on the account.
  • Data sharing is not available for use with Smart Hub devices.
