Hello and thanks a lot for posting your question!
The mobile hotspot is a service you get separately from your monthly plan and hence the reason for having to subscribe by making a payment of $5.00 for 1GB or $10.00 for 2GB of mobile hotspot service.
But to better work this out, I need your permission to send you a private message so we can check what's wrong with your account. I'll be looking forward to your reply back!
So, the actual activating the Boost Mobile Hotspot needs the prior purchasing of a data plan? - Can this be done simultaneously - (aka) - on the Web, when purchasing the HotSpot... BEFORE shipment, SO THAT IT CAN BE DELIVERED READY to ALIGN & SECURE the PASSWORD to TABLETS and LAPTOPS?
To make sure I understood your question, what you say is like if you can activate the Wi-Fi device by buying a data plan before completing the online buyout process.. Right?
Before I give you an aswer about your question, I would like to get your response to confirm if it's what I thought you tried to say or not. I'm here to help you!
Hey! Thanks for reporting that!
It could be possible that your device is not hotspot-capable, or perhaps you need to apply a master reset to fix a possible system glitch. To check that, I would need your permission to send you a private message.
After doing that, I will need you to allow me your mobile number and your account's PIN. Looking forward to your reply back!
