Can't set up personal hotspot 6S+ The Verizon Plan

Settings->Cellular->"Set Up Personal Hotspot" takes me to a web page that says nothing about Personal Hotspots. How do I set up a Personal Hotspot?

When you open Personal Hotspot do you have the option of turning it on and seeing the wifi password?

No, in Cellular->Settings there is only "Set Up Personal Hotspot", which brings up a dialog box with "To enable Personal Hotspot on this account, visit https://mobile.vzw.com/hybridClient/mvm/hotspot". It gives options for "Cancel" and "Go to Website". The latter option goes to a website that doesn't give any option to set up a personal hotspot.

  Hi Judithdrive, I don't use personal hotspot myself but perhaps the steps in this article may be of some help. Also notice in the article it uses lots of data.

I have the same problem as the original poster.  These links to guides don't help because the guides show an option to turn hotspots on or off.  My phone sends me to https://mobile.vzw.com/hybridClient/mvm/hotspot which doesn't help me out at all.

I have the same issue.  Just subscribed, and usually there's a button in my iphone where I can just choose personal hotspot.  now this is the case:

>>In Cellular->Settings there is only "Set Up Personal Hotspot", which brings up a dialog box with "To enable Personal Hotspot on this account, visit https://mobile.vzw.com/hybridClient/mvm/hotspot". It gives options for "Cancel" and "Go to Website". The latter option goes to a website that doesn't give any option to set up a personal hotspot.

And the web address isn't working, takes me (on multiple devices) to an html jargon page.

Please help, I switched to Verizon to use this feature.
