I tried connecting my girlfriend's data-less phone to my phone's mobile data using hot-spot and Bluetooth tethering.
I figured it was probably some glitch with her cheap phone so I then tried connecting her other phone which has data only to my data as well.
Both times both phones said they were connected to mind but there was no internet connection. I definitely had internet connection through data (not Wi-Fi).
I believe I have successfully used Hotspot on my phone tonight connect my chromebook with intense for movie streaming a few months ago so really doubt it was an issue with my phone but wondering why the heck did it not work?
