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

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
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.
