I have a data plan on my LG phoenix phone. I am unable to set up a hotspot or bluetooth tether.

Hello Kdhutch,

 

  Welcome to the community!

 

  Do you have a postpaid or a prepaid plan? As far as I am aware, prepaid plans do not allow for hotspot tethering (see here).

 

Hope this helps Smiley

 

Cheers

It is a post paid plan. A 3 GB dataplan.

I have already tried this. I keep getting a message saying the network is not working now try again later

Hi @Kdhutch!

 

Certain data-only plans are considered to be flexible data plans, and therefore aren't compatible with tethering. I'd need to take a closer look into your account to determine if that's the case with yours.

 

That said, I'll send you a PM. Talk to you soon. Smiley



Hey Kdhutch!

 

Is your plan a data-only plan or does it include minutes and texting? 

 

Let us know!
