tethering on unlocked iphone 6s

I recently purchased a Verizon branded iPhone 6s that is unlocked.  Unlocked from Verizon, unlocked to use with other GSM carriers.  The personal hotspot feature is grayed out as in I can't use it.  Is there a way to get this changed?  I am not on Verizon but would like to be able to use all of the features of this phone that I paid for.

What carrier are you using on the iPhone?  Is hotspot included on that plan?

The phone has to be connected to cellular data on SOME carrier for the hotspot to work properly.
