A temporary fix posted on the Android Central forums might help you:

 

"Go into settings put the date/calendar on manual and click it back a month to May. It will work now. Verizon had Samsung program in a stop date of May 31st before they extended the free hot spot to June 15th. Verizon is working on a permanent solution but this will work in the mean time."

 

There are follow-up posts on Android Central which mention possible side consequences of adjusting the date.  (source)

I understand your discontent. As I checked our system I learned that we have started to push a software update that will resolve this Mobile Hotspot issue. Please keep in mind that software updates are sent systematically and we cannot push the update to specific devices. Be assured that this upgrade will be sent your device soon.  For more information on this update please visit the link below:
