I have tried multiple times to turn on mobile hot spot on my S9 and I keep getting the message "data connection not available." It's absolutely irritating.
I have three bars, have accessed it before in the same location, and have no problems surfing the web and downloading podcasts.
I've rebooted my phone and checked wifi and connection settings and it all checks out but still no hot spot. Hot spot is included in my plan so that's not the problem either.
To make things even more irritating, its after hours for verizon phone support and I've tried after hours chat but theres no connection link available to connect through my verizon.
