    From the iPhone Manual:



    Personal Hotspot

    You can use Personal Hotspot (iPhone 4 or later) to share an Internet connection with a computer or other device—such as an iPod touch, iPad, or other iPhone—connected to your iPhone via Wi-Fi. You can also use Personal Hotspot to share an Internet connection with a computer connected to iPhone via Bluetooth or USB. Personal Hotspot works only if iPhone is connected to the Internet over the cellular data network.

    Note: This feature may not be available in all areas. Additional fees may apply. Contact your carrier for more information.

    Share an Internet connection: Go to Settings > General > Cellular and tap Set Up Personal Hotspot—if it appears—to set up the service with your carrier.

    After you turn on Personal Hotspot, other devices can connect in the following ways:

    • W-Fi: On the device, choose your iPhone from the list of available Wi-Fi networks.
    • USB: Connect your iPhone to your computer using the cable that came with it. In your computer’s Network preferences, choose iPhone and configure the network settings.
    • Bluetooth: On iPhone, go to Settings > Bluetooth and turn on Bluetooth. To pair and connect iPhone with your device, refer to the documentation that came with your computer.

      When a device is connected, a blue band appears at the top of the iPhone screen. Personal Hotspot remains on when you connect with USB, even when you aren’t actively using the Internet connection.

      Note: The Personal Hotspot icon appears in the status bar of iOS devices using Personal Hotspot.

      Change the Wi-Fi password for iPhone: Go to Settings > Personal Hotspot > Wi-Fi Password, then enter a password of at least 8 characters.

      Monitor your cellular data network usage: Go to Settings > General > Usage > Cellular Usage.
