    What he's saying is, I think you got to root, hack and modify your phone to enable tethering, the alternative would be to pay the monthly tethering fee to Cricket.

    I don't have your phone but usually if you don't want to active it thru your Carrier you either flash a custom rom or edit the build prop on the stock rom to allow tethering. You could ask in the thread I linked you to and see if anyone has a working hotspot.

    If you work for Cricket and the lady is your customer, and don't want to root and hack, you might have to sell her a tethering plan then. Which would enable the tethering menu on her Cricket phone.

    Carrier version phones will often have certain features disabled or locked, such as tethering, until you pay an extra fee or subscription for it.

    This advice is coming from China, where we don't have to deal with this.
