    I can't turn on hotspot on my Honor 5X. I am on Cricket/ATT. I also have a Moto G 3 and tethering works fine using the same sim card. What is the point in buying a phone that is suppose to be carrier unlocked if I can't be able to use all its features? I was happy with the Honor 5X and now I'm disappointed. I should be able to tether without any rooting.
    Can someone explain this, please. Why Honor 5X verifies tethering with the carrier if the phone is suppose to be carrier unlocked?

    I can't add the hotspot because my phone plan doesn't allow it. I would have to pay $20 more to qualify to use the hotspot and another $10 to tether. Like I said in my previous post... My Moto G3 hotspot feature works but the Honor 5X does not and I switch the sim card between the two phones. I do not understand why the Honor 5X verifies with the carrier if I'm paying for the hotspot feature when the phone is suppose to be carrier free and unlocked.

    I think the Moto G is actually the abnormal one, checking with the carrier is standard process, and if you're not paying for a hotspot plan, then it's probably not a good idea tonuse the hotspot feature, even if it works, as you may incur additional charges or even be banned.

    Mod Note, we don't allow discussion on how to bypass carrier hotspot restrictions, so this thread will be closed
