Vitalii Yovko (Expert): Hello, thank you for using Howly, my name is Vitalii. I’ll be happy to help you out! May I ask your name?

Customer: Can you help me tether my phone to my tablet hotspot. I am *****. How are you today?

Vitalii Yovko: Nice to meet you, *****!
Vitalii Yovko: I am fine, thanks 🙂
Vitalii Yovko: In order to help you, I need your assistance here please, could you tell me more about the issue?

Customer: Same
Customer: i need to tether my phone to tablet.

Vitalii Yovko: May I have the models of your phone and tablet?

Customer: Yes. One moment. The tablet is a NUU 8, the phone is a tracfone moto g power the tablet is a Muu 8

Vitalii Yovko: Sir, do you need to run both devices under the same Google account?

Customer: just a sec — no. i have a tracfone acct. they don’t support mobile tethering. The NUU 8 comes with a lifetime supply of time and data

Vitalii Yovko: Bruce, as I understand you have a phone number, added to NUU 8 tablet and you want to add this phone number to your tracfone acct?

Customer: No. The tablet does not work as a phone. It does work as a mobile hotspot. It is a bit of a mess. I appreciate your patience. I want to ride the Spin electric scooter. It won’t take Tracfone because they don’t support mobile tethering. The NUU 8 does. It has bluetooth and hotspot capability. the phone wants to pair with the tablet but not vice versa. PITA big time.

Vitalii Yovko: Thank you. Let me check

Customer: Let me talk to your boss. Give this man a big raise. But then he will take the boss job.

Vitalii Yovko: I will be glad to help you with your request
Vitalii Yovko: You can turn select phones into a Wi-Fi hotspot, allowing your Wi-Fi enabled devices to connect to the internet using your mobile data connection. To enable this feature from the main screen, follow these steps:

  1. If Wi-Fi is enabled on your tablet, turn it off by sliding the status bar down from the main screen. Tap the “Wi-Fi” icon to turn it off, then return to the Home screen.
  2. From the main screen, locate and tap the “Settings” icon.
  3. If necessary, tap “Connections” or “Network & internet.”
    Once you have done it, please let me know

Customer: I have to buy a different phone. Tracfone does not support mobile tethering. I thought I could get it to work with the NUU tablet. Tracfone won’t tether to anything. But …. while I was typing, the phone identified a device it will pair with. I turned on the hotspot on the phone. So it should pair with the tablet. Right?

Vitalii Yovko: Yes, you can pair your tablet with a device.
Have you also tried to contact Tracfone support?

Customer: Yes. Everybody but you is closed on Saturday. But I will keep going with you.
