What kind of mobile phone?

iPhone or Android phone?

What kind of phone data plan?

Limited data usage or unlimited? Post paid or prepaid SIM?

For most case, if it is not the lowest fee data plan or prepaid SIM, you are allowed to share the data network via mobile hotspot. Of course, asking your carrier is a good start.
