    Personal Hotspot Gone on iPhone 5?

    I don't see it. I called Rogers, they told me to call Apple.

    I think it moved to a different menu. If it is no where to be found, it is your carrier file that is missing, or you have an older data plan and the tethering feature fell off your account.

    Thanks, I found it....it's under CELLULAR. Stupid. But it's there. It also enables Bluetooth when you use it so it sucks battery big time.

    Now, it shows up under SETTINGS. Weird.

    You seriously called Rogers before taking the time to look around a bit more?

    Yup. This is what they're paid for: Tech support. Rogers could've killed my tethering for all I know. And this was my first iPhone since the 3G. I've been using Android and the Android App has it's own easy to find Hotspot right in the main menu.

    Yeah, I seem to recall that on iOS5. It is in one location until you enable it the first time and they it starts to show up on the main Settings.

    That's about right! The same thing happens with the VPN connection.

    Yep that's what I was going to say: It is the same for iOS5 and iOS6, it is under cellular until you enable it once, then it is in the main settings menu. This way it doesn't clutter up the main menu if you don't use it, but it is there nice and handy if you do.

    Yup D Mac is absolutely correct. It never showed up on the main Settings page in any iOS version until it was turned on for the first time. The menu used to be called Network and is now called Cellular, but it's always been in the exact same spot: Settings>General and is nearly identical apart from the name change.
