Hi ,

My name is***** am sorry to hear that you are having this issue.

I will be glad to assist you with this.

Do you have hotspot enabled on your iPhone?

  1. Tap Settings > Cellular.
  2. Tap Personal Hotspot and turn it on.

After you set up Personal Hotspot, you can go to Settings > Personal Hotspot to turn it on or off and change your password.

If you don't see the option for Personal Hotspot, ask your carrier if you can use Personal Hotspot with your plan.
