    Do you have the plan to allow hotspots?

    You have to have both a phone with the hotspot enabled as well as a plan that supports it. As long as you have the plan there are ways to get around the hidden hotspot. Without the plan you would be better off getting one of the really inexpensive hotspots with it's own free plan.

    I had a Hydro for a short time and could not get the hotspot feature to work. Went round and round with customer service and they couldn't figure it out either.

    You'll need to root the device to get the hotspot feature. It's not hidden from you, it's been removed completely by Kyocera at the behest of boost mobile

    Common issues related to FreedomPop Devices:

    If you are having trouble with the FreedomPop messaging app registering, always try uninstalling it and then reinstalling it. If that doesn't work download push notification fixer (no root) from the play store. make sure both intervals are set to 5 minutes and click apply.

    I don't work for FreedomPop
