Is it possible to use an older "dead" phone as a hotspot?
I currently have an iPhone 13+, with the AT&T Unlimited Elite Plan which comes with hotspot data.
I also have a "dead" iphone 11 thats sitting in a drawer, dead meaning that I've paid it off and is off because I upgraded to the 13+
Is there any way I can use the 11 as a hotspot device using the same Unlimited Elite plan? I don't want to connect it to a line or phone number. I only really need a hotspot like one month a year, so I don't need an extra line/plan. Last resort, does AT&T offer just a data plan a device. I know they sell hotspot devices but would rather not get into a 2-3 year contract to pay for a device I use one month a year.
I don't wanna use my 13 as the hotspot device as I wanna use a stationary hotspot device as it'll be in a hotel convention center/ballroom and will be connected to multiple devices. I walk around alot with my phone so I want the devices connected to maintain connection with a stationary hotspot device.
