    Hotspot on iPhone?

    Playing around with an older 5s. Everything works great (on att) except hotspot doesn't work even after messing with settings. Hotspot works fine on the two Android phones I tested so I'm guessing I'm missing a setting somewhere. I'm rusty on iPhone nowadays after using androids for so long so it's probably something simple

    Also it was originally a Verizon phone

    Is it using the same account/sim? Did you reset all network settings?

    Yeah it's weird. Never had it work in one phone and not another. I reset network settings and have tried other stuff. I'll play with it some more.

    does your plan allow hotspot use ??
    some phones have hotspot that works out of the box
    and others, you'd have to root the phone and edit the prop file.
    you might try updating the iphone 5s.

    Depending on the carrier, they may have to provision hotspot on their end. We had to do that with Consumer Cellular. iPhones seem to be funny that way.

    I had ATT wireless for a short time, unless you are on the unlimited plan that allow hotspot 10 GB to use, otherwise go to Verizon prepaid that allow hotspot usages.
