Mobile Hotspot Connection Issues

I recently bought the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, and after about a week or two of using it, I attempted to use the hotspot but was unable to. When trying to turn on the hot spot, I got an error saying "Authentication Error" so I went through all of the troubleshooting steps recommended by Verizon and it still wouldn't work. So I decided to contact Verizon and upon talking with them I was told that "This is a known issue, and we have put together a team to deal with it specifically, so I will email the team, and once they receive my email they will flip a switch, and your hotspot will begin to work immediately." Following this conversation, within 12 hours, my hotspot was working! Just a little information for anyone having the same issue.

Hello Verizon.  I have this same issue.  I cannot connect to the mobile hotspot on my Note 8 with other devices due to an authentication error, despite typing the password correctly numerous times.

Note 8.  Android 9.  It used to work fine.

Please make it work again!  Not sure what you did to kill it, but please restore it!!!
