sure. I do it using WiFi Tether on my Galaxy Note 2. Just needs to get an IP from the device. You're going to need to connect a PC to the hotspot so you can set it. You may need another device--PC or mobile device--to sling from.

Somewhere in the config of the hotspot... Is there an option for "isolation"? If there is switch it off, then you should be on the right road.

I don't think Google have made it hard. The thing that's making it hard for you is your mobile hotspot (and I think the fact that it is defaulting to not allowing communication between two devices connected to it: you can try this with two other devices - using ping... If you can ping each device from the other its something other than client isolation)

It would help if you could tell us the make/model of your hotspot.
More-generic ones like my CradlePoint PHS300 and Zyxel MWR102 and MWR211 default to letting wireless clients see each other, but do have the option to keep wireless clients isolated (so they can access Internet, but not see each other).

Thanks. Unfortunately I have no experience with Verizon equipment. Hopefully someone else can chime in.
