    Enable personal hotspot

    So I just got my iPhone 5C with a "flashed" sim chip active to Boost Mobile .. all is working good, my only issue is the personal hotspot, when I try to turn it on I get the message that I need to contact boost mobile for activation ..

    The problem is that the phone that is on my account is not this iPhone but the donor incognito .. and I am on the old grandfathered $.35 per day unlimited data
    So obviously I cannot call boost to activate it so .... my question is what are my options to get this native hotspot active or do I have to do a jailbreak and install a 3rd party tethering app ??

    How fortunate for governments that the people they administer don't think for themselves to see the lies & deception brought to them for a false reality

    Enable personal hotspot

    You are going to have to jailbreak and install an app like tetherme.

    Sounds like you're using a Quick-Sim, since iPhone 5Cs from Sprint and Verizon can be official activated on Boost. Only way for you to get hotspot is going to be to jailbreak.

    Yep that's the way it's looking ... It's on 10.2.1 so I have to wait a while for a good JB to come out
