Re: Hotspot doesn't work

Try booting in safe mode and turn Hotspot in safe mode to check it

For booting in safe mode

  1. While the phone is on, press and hold the power key.
  2. In the pop up window, touch and hold Power off option until the Reboot to safe mode message appears.
  3. Tap OK and let your device restart in safe mode.

Re: Hotspot doesn't work

Hi @Bilal7, sorry to hear about this. Slightly frowning Face

Has there been any change after trying what @Satyaveer suggested? If there has been no change, try resetting the network settings in your device.

  1. Find and tap Settings > Network & Internet.
  2. Tap the menu button (three vertical dots) > Network settings reset > RESET SETTINGS.

Do note that this will delete saved Wi-Fi networks and remove previously paired Bluetooth devices.

Let us know if that helps or if you have already solved it! Slightly smiling Face
