    I had trouble getting hotspot to work. Customer service recommended that I change my MVNO type to GID, but my APN doesn't have MVNO type or value available for altering. They also suggested that my phone wasn't completely unlocked. I found a fix somewhere on the web. I added ",dun" to APN type and it started working. Here's the APN I am successfully using. on my (GSMA)LG G6. The APN settings that aren't listed below should remain untouched. Good luck!

    GSMA network.

    Data works perfectly on the phone. Open the phone's browser, surf, use internet apps, etc.

    Tethering and portable hotspot option is greyed out. 

    I pull the back off the phone and insert a SIM from a Verizon MVNO. Tethering and portable hotspot option becomes available.

    Turn the hotspot on. 

    Pull the Verizon SIM and re-insert the RedPocket. Hotspot works perfectly. 

    Turn the hotspot off, it immediately greys out again and can't turn it back on. 

    This has been going on for nearly a week since I switched to RedPocket. Anyone else having this problem?

    Hi christopherjlocke,

    I have been battling with this myself.  Without that 'MVNO Type' set to GID in the APN, hotspot does not work.  I am using an LG G8X ThinQ.  If I pop the SIM out and put it in a Motorola G6, the option is in the APN and I can set it appropriately and the hotspot works.  

    LG told me that Red Pocket needs to send an OTA with the APN settings.  Red Pocket said they cant do that and since the MVNO type is not there, the phone must be locked - but it's not.  

    The only thing I guess to do is try another phone that might have the option.  I have not found a way to set that hidden setting to make the hotspot work.

    I finally had to root my phone and edit the build.prop file to enable hotspot. Ridiculous, but it worked. 

    Picture messaging and wifi calling are a whole other story. Haven't even tried that yet.
