If by wifi hotspot you mean sharing your connection, yes it does. It can be accessed it the Setings > General > Network Or you can read this page here : http://ipod.about.com/od/iphonehowtos/ss/Use-Iphone-Personal-Hotspot_2.htm It will affect data usage as if you were using your phone to navigate the internet. The data you use on the device you are sharing the connection to will use the data from your phone. So if it is a computer, pay attention to any ackground application that might be using data. Some examples : uTorrent, Windows updates, antivirus programs, etc.
