I just found a way to get the hotspot to work on my Samsung Galaxy S8 phone. Following the instructions for data setup on the Mint website failed to allow hotspot to work. The one change needed to get hotspot to work is for the APN type, use "default,supl,mms,dun" The "dun" is missing from the instructions from Mint.

dun

Indicates the current APN configuration may be used for Dial-Up Networking connections. This refers to an outdated method for using your phone to emulate a dial-up modem and is not the way that modern smartphones do tethering anymore. There should be no need to use this value.
