Hi there LauraJSmyser,
A mobile hotspot is a great way for a non-cellular device, such as a laptop, to tap into your phone's data and connect to the internet. It's incredibly handy if you have cell service but no Wi-Fi available!
Some phones are capable of creating their own hotspots with a simple change of the settings. Generally, you just have to turn the hotspot on in your phone's settings, and you'll likely have an option to set up a password as well. Then, simply connect your device to your phone's hotspot like you would any other Wi-Fi. With that said, you should keep any data limits you may have in mind!
If you wish to actually share the exact model of your phone, I would be happy to look further into your phone's capabilities.
