The only good offer they had was an extra $50 off via trade in, but that's about it. However, there are many great offerings that are currently available. Most carriers are offering bundles, such as the ultimate bundle for $99 and the power bundle for $49. Each bundle is worth $400 and $120 respectively. Verizon has a BOGO deal going on and T-mobile currently offers 50% off if financed with trade in. The ultimate bundle includes the Gear Iconx, the new VR, and a wireless charging stand. While the power bundle includes a wireless charging stand, portable charger and a car charger. You can also trade in your phone for even bigger savings, and if you're a student in college, you'll save even more! All new purchases will also receive a coupon for 30% off on one accessory item via email.

Whenever you put a new sim into the device, your phone reboots to update network settings for that carrier. I'm not sure about unlocking devices, but that person might be right. If it is a carrier branded device(if you bought it from Sprint/Verizon) it may need to be unlocked from the respective carrier. Contact both carriers and Google if you can. Now find you can't find Mobile Hotspot, try doing a search within settings, if that doesn't work, pull down the notification tray, pull down again to expand icons and look for "Mobile Hotspot", once found, hold own on the icon and it should take you directly to the MH settings. If you're trying to use someone else's Hotspot, click Settings > Connections(Wi-Fi) > Mobile Hotspot and Tethering. If you can't find answers here, try Reddit, usually gets the job done.
