You don't say what kind of phone you are using for your Visible account.  If it is an iPhone you need to understand that connecting an iPhone's hotspot to a non-iOS device can be a bit challenging.  If you are using an iPhone, let me know and I'll walk you through the steps you need to take.

Hey docj, how would I go about setting this up for the first time on an iPhone?

IPhone hotspots have sort of a "sleep mode" in which they become invisible to non-Apple devices.  What I have found works best is to start by:

1.  Turn hotspot off

2.  Turn WiFi totally off for 30 seconds then back on

3.  Turn hotspot on and make sure to check the box "Share this connection"

4.  Use the "quick menu" that you get by swiping down from the right corner to temporarily turn off WiFi otherwise the phone will use WiFi rather than LTE.

If this doesn't make the hotspot visible to other devices then reboot the phone and try again.
