I asked people about personal hotspot and they said it comes together in the phone. But i dont have it in my phone when i first got it.

I also know that when u jailbroke the phone u can get it, but i dont wanna jailbreak it.

I googled about this and i couldnt find any article for iphone 4S only for iphone 3GS and 4.

Also there were articles about AT&T carrier. But i am not living in the US, and the phone is original unlock

ANybody can help me with this ?

The main aim is to get personal hotspot without having to jailbroken it.


iPhone 4S, iOS 5.0.1, i am in Cambodia

    The PH is only available if your carrier offers it.  It would be activated when the phone was provisioned for your carrier.  Since you don't have it, I assume your carrier doesn't support the iPhone or doesn't offer that feature.

    personal Hotspot is a function enabled by your cell service plan. Ask you Cell service provider if they can add Hotspot to your service. This may or may not be an additional cost.

    Personal hotspot is setup by going to Settings > General > Network > Personal Hotspot.


    To setup a personal hotspot your carrier must support using personal hotspots...those in the US charge for that service.


    Have you checked that your carrier supports personal hotspots?

    Well then maybe you should go talk to your local "phone shop."

    Call your carrier and ask them to set it up for you.

    You can only get a hotspot by having a 6 gb plan and if your carrier offers it.

    I also didn't have a PH on my new iPhone 4s.  A quick chat with the provider resolved that, it's a bug with the IOS software, sometimes it's there other times it goes.  Moving ffrom IOS5 to 5.1 also removed the option.


    Settings - Mobile Data Network - Reset Settings


    Forces a restart and then PH is displayed.


    You may need to reenter any WIFI passwords.

    I'd faced the same problem as you.


    I just solved it at the moment.


    These're my solution :

    - Setting > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings

    - Setting > Carrier > turn off Automatic > Tap ur Current Carrier

    - Setting > General > Network > Cellular Data Network > on all APN put ur carrier (Call to ask ur Carrier company)

    And then you'll see ur Personal Hotspot in Setting > General > Network > Personal Hotspot

    Set ur Wifi-Password


    And It's done ^_^

    Wish u good luck
