    I have sort of the same issue on my new phone unlocked Passport. When I try and turn on the hotspot features I am greeted with a message that says it has to be activated by my carrier? I purchased the unlocked version for the sole purpose of bypassing carrier restrictions. Any suggestions?

    You still need the carrier to enable it. It depends on the plan you have. For example if you have one AT&T legacy unlimited plans they won't enable Hotspot. They want you on a new metered plan

    Your carrier has to provision your device for mobile hotspot can be used, if you thought that all you have to do is buy a unlocked device, than you are in for a world of hurt. If you don't have it on your account, then no matter what phone you have with the capability, it will not work.

    I don't think the Mobile Hotspot is carrier related in any way. Here's my scenario ...

    Prior to me getting the Classic a week back, I had the Samsung Galaxy S4.

    And hotspot was functioning perfectly well on the S4. Its the same SIM I am using.

    My Classic is unlocked. And there's carrier locking etc. where I live.

    Its gotta be issues with the OS.

    Any ideas ??

    It is in fact dependent on the carrier. They have to enable it per account, the phone being unlocked doesn't matter.

    My unlocked shopbb Passport had no Hotspot on my ATT grandfathered unlimited, but works flawlessly on my Tmobile unlimited plan.
