Have you checked with Verizon? Some plans do not allow tethering.

My understanding with the prepaid option they have hotspot available
Android Device Expert: Harry, IT replied 4 months ago

Did you speak to them about it? You mentioned "my understanding" which means that you are interpreting the plan.

I know my phone is a straight talk phone and I thought most likely that they had some way of not allowing tethering with this device.
Android Device Expert: Harry, IT replied 4 months ago

That is possible. Did you speak with them?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Not directly. The tech who moved my plan over did not know much about the plan. Should I call them first?
Android Device Expert: Harry, IT replied 4 months ago

Yes, because it is likely that your account cannot do tethering either through the plan or phone.

Okay I went to the Verizon call center and it's said that I have hotspot available with my prepaid program. That there was no software needed as long as my phone had the hotspot capabilities
Android Device Expert: Harry, IT replied 4 months ago

You spoke with Verizon that quickly? That is impressive. Normally, it takes a while.

Did you speak to an actual person?

No. It was a pre recorded message

I talked with a technician and she confirmed that the tethering option is available and is on my account currently. We did notice that in normal cases you can go to the menu page and be able to turn on Hotspot on your networks page but I don't have that available on mine. So that is why I'm contacting you
Android Device Expert: Harry, IT replied 4 months ago

If it is available on your plan then it is not a function on your phone itself.

Is that a ?
Android Device Expert: Harry, IT replied 4 months ago

No, that was a statement.

there is. No way to tether this phone?
Android Device Expert: Harry, IT replied 4 months ago

The phone itself should have the option to tether under Settings then Tethering and Mobile Hotspot

If you don't see that option then it cannot tether.

But I thought I was talking to a ZTE expert someone who knows the phones inside and out and that there's a work around it.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Okay so I'm dissatisfied I'll make sure that I get a refund. To ask a question you had me go to someplace else and ask the question that person told me what I needed to do. And you just confirmed it without doing anything. Thanks for your time
