    How exactly were you "given access"? Did you use the other person's SIM card, or were they using their device as a wireless hotspot?

    Maybe they've exceeded their data allowance? There's nothing for you to "fix" as you've done nothing but connect to their device.

    Just a thought... does the other party still have the hotspot enabled? If so then they won't be able to use the device over wifi as it's still acting as an access point rather than a client device.
