Had a few questions about the new 4G LTE CellSpot and how data usage is calculated by T-Mobile.
1. If I'm connected to my own CellSpot, and I make a phone call, is that phone call considered "data"? I have unlimited calling, so I'm hoping the call would be processed as a normal phone call, and not as data usage. I read somewhere that a 1 hour phone call on the CellSpot used up 1GB of "data", but it was in a youtube comment, so hopefully it was just someone talking nonesense. Link to the youtube video (scroll down to the comment by "Naresh Guragai", which says "4G LTE Cellspot consume around 1GB of data every one hour on active calls from your/our internet service provider(ISP). This was said by a T-mobile representative when i asked them to tell me the approximate data consume by new cellspot and they also informed me that the data speed of cellspot is not going to be more than ISP data speed."): Testing the new 4GLTE CellSpot from T-Mobile - YouTube
2. If my neighbors connect to my CellSpot (unbeknownst to me) and stream Netflix, will MY data plan be affected or will theirs?
