    What plan are you on? I'm on the $50 unlimited, which doesn't offer hotspot. If I try to open a hotspot on my phone, it will appear to be working and another device can connect, but won't actually have internet access.

    Yeh, you'll definitely need to check with Metro, if tethering is included or not. You may have to pay an extra subscription for it.

    I have a device with MetroPCS and Hotspot plan is $60.00 dollars a month, the $50.00 dollar plan is only unlimited data with talk and text with no Hotspot.

    Download PDANet and install next find FoxFi key to give you full version of PdaNet connect your phone to your computer it will tell you to download PdaNet execution file to your computer make sure you hide your tether on the PdaNet app
