Google Pixel 6 Pro Hotspot Not Working

Just got the Pixel 6 Pro, took the sim from my Pixel 5 and put it into the new phone, everything seems fine. Except when I try to turn on the hotspot, it says I need to have a plan for it and says to contact AT&T customer service? In my phone settings, it does say Cricket for network so that's confusing. I do have a plan that includes hotspot. It worked totally fine on my Pixel 5. The lady at the cricket store didn't give a very clear or concise answer, my guess is that she either didn't know how to help or what we were needing or didn't want to deal with us as it was in the last hour of the day. Any help is appreciated.

I don't have a Pixel 6a. I have the Pixel 6 Pro.

Bump for this. I am having the same issue on Pixel 5a.

Both the Pixel 6 pro and Pixel 5a are hotspot compatible on the BYOD list.
