,just bought asus tablet, searching for how to use phone for wifi hotspot.
Hello and welcome to Android Forums! :)

It will depend on two things. First you must have a phone that has the hotspot feature enabled. It will depend on the phone model and carrier as well as which version of Android you have. And, you must have the ability to tether as part of your data plan, or have a separate data plan from your carrier depending on their policy regarding tethering.

If you let us know the phone model and carrier we can point you to that information.
