Data Tethering subscription?

I have the $50/ unlimited plan, and up until 2 days ago my tethering hotspot worked. When i tried to turn it on, i received a notification that i had not subscribed to the data tethering. I've tried searching for the subscription and can't find it. My understanding was that i had 8g of hotspot data, but can't access wherever I'm supposed to look to see what the issue is. My phone is up to date, it upgraded a few day's ago, so that's not the issue. Can a staffer help me understand what the problem is?

Hey there, @Typicalt03! Bear in mind that, on the $35 plan, the hotspot uses the data assigned to your plan. If you use your data usage, the hotspot will stop working.
