Is there a way to activate a hotspot on the Moto G?  (3rd Gen)

Hey Doug,

Thanks for reaching out. The Mobile Hotspot feature is currently unsupported with TextNow. This means I am able to turn it on for you but there is no guarantee it will work. 

The Moto G (3rd Gen.) does not have the ability to Hot-Spot natively. However, you should be able to find a 3rd party app from the Play Store to make that work. 

I've sent you an email with a bit more information. Please respond to me there!

Hey Roger,

Thanks for reaching out. The Mobile Hotspot feature is currently unsupported with TextNow. This means I am able to turn it on for you(which I have done) on the network side of things but there is no guarantee it will work.

Hi Korey,

As requested, I have enabled tethering on your device! Please be advised we don't fully support hotspots, but head to your device Settings > System Updates and update the Profile and PRL to activate the tethering feature.

Good morning Esdras!

I've enabled the feature for your device, but please be advised that we do not officially support hot spotting, and to check out our Fairuse policy to ensure that you manage your data during your billing cycle!

Hi Kathrine,

Thanks for reaching out! I'm afraid the hotspot feature is not supported through our GSM sim cards, so we cannot enable that feature for you to try today.

If you do have a dual band iPhone you may be able to try the hotspot with one of our CDMA sim cards, but you would have to make sure it is compatible with your device first and then order one of those sim cards on our website.

Hi Wayne,

I have gone ahead and enabled your hotspot on our end. Please note that TextNow does not officially support hotspotting so you can definitely test out the feature now but we cannot guarantee it will work for you.

If it doesn't work right away I would recommend restarting your phone and trying again :)

I have enabled the hotspot feature on your device on our end, however as I mentioned above, we do not officially support the hotspot so I cannot guarantee it will work for you. But definitely try it out and see how it goes :)
