I Have the S20 5g [updated to today].
I successfully used the Bluetooth Tethering and Hotspot back in February. I have not changed carriers or plans. Now both do not work.
To be specific: when I attempt to swipe tethering for either Bluetooth/usb, the settings app crashes ("settings keeps stopping'' error message). I have Bluetooth enabled and am connected to another device.
For Hotspot, I receive the same error message as this other thread: https://us.community.samsung.com/t5/Galaxy-S-Phones/Mobile-Hotspot-not-working-on-Samsung-Galaxy-S20...
I followed the suggestions on rebooting, cache clearing, network settings reset, and trying it in safe mode.
Solved! Go to Solution.
What carrier are you on, and software version for you S20? (Settings > About Phone > Software Information > Build Number (last 4 characters)) It would help to know this info. This also seems like a reoccurring issue, try submitting an error report via the Samsung Members App so Samsung could help fix this right away! Thanks and good luck!
Please reach out to your carrier directly regarding issues using their services.

@SamsungColeIt is not a carrier issue : tethering and hotspot still work when I switch my sim into a different phone. The problem is the S20 post Feb2021 update. The most recent updates also have not fixed the issue.
