Tethering service for LTE SIM?

Sim Kulaga Sim Kulaga FreedomPop Newbie Posts: 2
I have the LTE SIM I use on an iPhone 5c. I have the FP Phone Premier service. I want to use my phone as a hotspot.

The Personal Hotspot option is not available in my phone settings. I do not see a service listed on my FP account page for tethering/hotspot use.

On my old BYOD account there was a separate FP service I bought for tethering. Is an equivalent service available for the LTE SIM?

    @Sim Kulaga I have a phone with the tethering option built into the menu. It works for me. I have a CDMA phone where the previous carrier (that sold the phone - Boost mobile) had disabled the tethering option from displaying. I found a way to re-enable it. On this phone I have the Premium Plus pkg with Tethering included.
    Your phone may have similar treatments. Search the internet for ways to re-enable the menu options on your phone. If those instructions mention rooting the phone, be very cautious to proceed. Print out ALL the steps so If you lose contact with that site, it wont matter that much. It is too easy to blunder and make a mistake.

    I checked my LTE SIM for services
    The FreedomPop Premier has tethering. $10.99
    The FreedomPop Premier & VIP support does not $10.99
    The FreedomPop Premium Plus does not have it. $7.99
    No independent tethering was offered to me.
    Strange: I am able to access tethering without the subscription.
