Hi and thanks for using JustAnswer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do whatever I can to help answer your questions and get your problem resolved!
Is this the wireless hotspot that is built into a phone(if so, which make and model). Or, is it a portable wifi hotspot device?
the personal hotspot is a feature that can be activated on the standard iPhone 4. Note that my phone is not an iPhone 4S. The wireless carrier I use is ATT.
Step 2: Now look for “Personal Hotspot” which is visible enough for you to miss. Tap on that to open its settings pane.
This is the feature you can never find in iPhone 4 that runs on iOS 4.2 and lower.
Step 3: You simply have to toggle on Personal Hotspot switch to ON. If it is previously disabled, a window pops up asking you if you want to “Turn on Bluetooth” or “Wi-Fi and USB Only“.
Step 4: You will then be able to see the default password. If you want to change it for security purposes, tap on it and you will be brought to a new pane where you can easily change it. Just don’t forget to tap on “Done” button after.
Step 5: That’s it. Your iPhone will start transmitting signal that your other devices can easily connect to. One more thing, you will be able to know how many devices are connected to your iPhone by looking at the blue bar at the top of your screen; it indicates the number of devices connected.
With Personal Hotspot, you can easily create a smaller Wi-Fi hotspot in your home. Connecting PC/laptop is as easy as connecting to a wireless hotspot available in cafes, malls and almost other public places.
Step 1: You will be able to find a list of network services in your computer, choose iPhone.
Step 2: Enter the default password XXXXX you haven’t changed it yet. If you did, then use the one set in your iPhone.
Step 1: You must pair your iPhone and your computer first before you can use Bluetooth to connect to your Wi-Fi.
Step 2: When you select iPhone from Bluetooth menu, a passcode will be sent to your iPhone. It is the same passcode that you can see in your computer.
Step 3: After a few seconds, you will be connected to a hotspot.
Please let me know if you are able to get thru them.
New update. I was able to connect the hotspot to the iPad using blue tooth. I have an indication on the iPhone now: "Personal Hotspot: 1 Connection". Will this bluetooth connection do all the things the WiFi connection would do?
Thanks. I am trying to give you a 4 star rating. I hope that message gets through.
I have been trying to give 4 stars for the service from the expert but i am not sure the rating and "submit" button of your website works appropriately. In any event, the service was fine and the problem is now resolved.
