    The hotspot isn't set up properly, but without seeing it anything would be just a wild guess. Start over and set it up again.

    Would need more info to troubleshoot further... what hotspot app are you using? Are you rooted? Do you have a tethering plan? Are you tethering through Bluetooth or WiFi? The more info the better :)

    Do you have a tethering plan from Verizon? Are you rooted/running a custom ROM? The built in tethering app won't work unless you meet either criteria
