Wow! It’s so weird that this works but it just does! The Personal Hotspot slider re-appeared on my main settings page right after the restart. Thanks for posting this Ed!
Glad it was helpful Vinny. I appreciate the feedback.

Hotspot not been set up for amaysim. When i try to set up a personal hotspot on iphone 4s on ios7.1 it does not work but on my friends phone that is google nexus it works
Hi Balraj. Hotspots depend on your agreement with your carrier. Many don’t allow a personal hotspot unless you pay them extra or have it included in your package. The personal hotspot does work under iOS 7.1 on a iPhone (I use the 5s).
Ed!!!!!! Your a LEGEND!!!!!! Saved me at least 3 hours at the Vodaphone Store. Really hope I can reciprocate the favor one day.. Cheers ..
Glad I could be of help and thanks for that comment. All I ever ask of folks who tell me stuff like this is to pay it forward. Next time you have a chance to help someone out, think about this and just do it. They’ll probably be as happy as you are now.
How do I start a blog with payment options for readers?
This sounds like a good topic for a future blog post. It’s too involved for a brief reply in these comments. Look for this at a future date.
I struggled a lot with LIMITED ACCESS notice on my win7 laptop when tethering my iPhone 4. No any positive result after trying all the tricks found at various websites. Finally, i found the solution. I was thinking that there is some problem with my laptop but actually the problem was with phone. Below are the steps,
1. Setting:- Mobile:- Mobile Data Network:- Personal Hotspot:- APN
Insert proper APN here (Depends on your network) In my case, it is BSNL India so i have entered “bsnlnet”.
And you are done.
My network is Idea so What should I do to solve this problem.
Pls give me a solution for this.
Hi Aswin. Sorry, I’m not familiar with that network so I’m not sure how I can help.
Thanks a lot.

Thanks Karen. Glad you found this helpful.
I have a prepaid AT&T goPhone plan and an iPhone 5S with v7.0.4 firmware. I am unable to activate the hotspot, it keeps asking me to call or visit AT&T site. The same sim card installed on my Note II works well and I can create a hotspot and tether my connection to all my devices!
It seems Apple is collaborating quite well with the carriers to prevent us using our phones the way we need to!
Any other solution to this?
many thanks to all.

Hi I recently had an iPhone 5c (ios7) that had the option for personal hotspot and it worked fine but then I had to exchange it for another one because the phone became faulty and would not accept any nano cards so after receiving a new iPhone it did not have the option for personal hotspot so I upgraded it to ios7 again as I thought this would solve it being my first apple product but I still have not got the option for personal hotspot I’ve tried every method but the option does not exist whatsoever I’ve searched through every setting sub menu but can’t find nothing that even relates to the hotspot function any help would be much appreciated thanks in advance
Hi Andrew. I’m not sure what the problem may be but if you had it previously on your cellular plan then you should still have it (unless something changed on your plan). It’s in a different place in iOS7; in Settings > Cellular and then right underneath Data Roaming is the option to turn Personal Hotspot on. If that doesn’t work then Id suggest making an appointment at the Apple Genius Bar and see if they can figure it out.
A reader sent me an email mentioning another app similar to HelpBridge called What R U Up 2. I’ve not tried it out but it looks useful and perhaps more refined than HelpBridge. You can find out more about it at http://whatruup2.com/.

Trying to get personal hotspot on my iPhone 5 but it’s not even on my phone?
Hi Suzie. The personal hotspots functionality is controlled by your cellular provider. It may not be included with your plan. Check with your provider. If you are running iOS 6 it should be located in Settings in the top section right underneath Bluetooth

It still dont work and I got a iPhone 3g
I found it!! Plug your iPhone into your laptop let iTunes come up then in your phone turn hotspot on and she should connect. Think it runs net directly through the iPhone chord into the laptop so it’s more of a router connection as opposed to wireless… Still very simple and should defs work fellas

Can u help me to connect personnel hotspot with my laptop,,mine is iPhone4 version 7.1,,carrier-16.0
Hi Anas. Its hard to be able to do this remotely. Have you tried setting it up? If so, what specific issue seems to be causing the issue?
The problem is am using bsnl sim,,so iPhone doesn’t have carrier connection with bsnl
Hi anas. Sorry its taken we a while to reply. I’m not familiar with the bsnl sim so I’m not sure how I can help. Sorry.
This worked! Thank you!
Thanks this worked great however the cellular data option is found under. Settings > general > usage on my phone I never got ios6 as there going down hill
Hi Chris. Thanks for that comment. I should have specified I was using iOS 6 in my post. You are correct for iOS 5.
I don’t necessarily agree that things are going downhill. I personally liked the many new features in iOS 6 and have only had a couple of minor issues. Having been an Android user for many years I can tell you I think the situation is much worse on that side of the fence.
