beagator, sorry to hear that you're having some troubles with using that feature, but we are here to help. Are you receiving any error messages or what seems to be going on when you attempt to tether? Also, in order for this feature to work you would have to be subscribed to a plan or feature that would include the hotspot. Are you aware of what plan you are on now and if you are subscribed to a mobile hotspot feature?

No error messages on my phone.  On the laptop it shows a connection but it does not have internet access, it states limited.  You can see it connecting on the computer.  I utilize the hotspot feature all the time so I should have access to the tethering usb part too...right?  I have the more everything package with 10 gb of data.  Should it work directly without using one of the tethering app from google play?

beagator,

Thanks for the details. The tethering portion of you phone should work without any additional applications. When you select the tethering option is just the option for USB tethering selected? Have you been able to tether the device successfully in the past? Are you able to connect with the mobile hotspot successfully?
