What APN are you set to and is there more then one APN in your network settings?

Delete the hs APN and then reboot and try again.

I assume you have credit or an active plan with data?

I found a fix on the XDA forum  
- I used ADB 
- I enabled developer options on the phone and enabled both usb debugging and the (security settings) options 
- I typed: 
adb shell
- The prompt should change into the phone model
- I typed 
settings get global tether_dun_required
- If the result is null or 1 tethering will not work (mine was null)
- I typed 
settings put global tether_dun_required 0
- I typed exit two times to go out of the shell
- Rebooted the phone
After that the tethering was working fine, both usb and wifi.
Global, locked
