Oh no! Sorry to hear that kirlie. I know it's important to have it up and running soon. Please go to Settings>Apps>All>Mobile Hotspot>Stop & reset app. Try connecting again.

kirlie Thanks for trying. Please try and power off the phone and remove the sim for 30 seconds. Once you power the phone back on, retest the mobile hotspot.
