Use 5G iPhone Hotspot as WAN for RV345

I'm on the new Verizon plans that include access to 5G. To my knowledge, they include unlimited 5G mobile hotspot on plans such as Do More or Get More Unlimited (if anyone out there is familiar with the new plans and can confirm that for me, that'd be great).

 

I'm curious as what it would involve to connect a 5G iPhone's Mobile Hotspot feature to the RV345 as a primary WAN/Internet connection (would I need some form of WAP or would it work over USB?).

 

My ISP here is so unreliable, and ultimately I'm interested in Verizon 5G Home/5G fixed Small Business once they officially offer it here. In the meantime, we're the next county that's going to get Verizon mobile 5G (Verizon is the most reliable provider in my area), so if there's a way I could rig up an unlimited 5G Mobile Hotspot from a 5G iPhone to power my Internet connection, I'd be willing to look into it just so I could get off my ISP fast.

 

Thanks!

What are you trying to achieve/accomplish?  Are you intending to use your phone as a "gateway" (to the internet) or you intending to use your RV345 as the internet gateway? 

Any smartphone can connect to any 802.11a/b/g/n/ac/ax wireless access point (AP) and the AP is hard-wired to the internet router.

While my RV345 will be the router, I want the 5G iPhone to serve as the WAN connection to replace my current ISP (if possible). My current ISP is so unreliable that I am practically desperate for a way to rig up an unlimited 5G solution to the RV345 once 5G is switched on in my area.
