    No hotspot on my iphone
    Hi everyone! I'm new to the forum...
    I have just finished downloading the iOS 4.3 to my iPhone 4, but I can't find the personal hotspot option. My iPhone is not from US, i live in south America and my carrier is CLARO.

    Is there a way to download a software for another carrier or to have the personal hotspot regardless if my carrier will charge me more?

    Thanks!

    I don't know if iPhone's are any different depending on your location, but I'll explain how to get there on my iPhone 4, its really simple on mine:

    Settings > Personal Hotspot (3rd option down)
     15" MBPr (2012): 2.3Ghz i7, 8GB RAM, 256 GB SSD  24" Apple Cinema Display  iPhone 5 16GB Black  iPad 2 16GB White

    I don't have the option. Settings: airplane mode, wi-fi, notifications, location services, carrier. That's everything on the first box

    Specs:
    27" iMac i7 (2011) 10.11, Mac Mini i5 (2014), iPhone6s, Apple Watch, iPad Air 2, New AppleTV (4?)
    Personal Hotspot on 4.3 is in Settings - General - Network - 5th option down 'Set Up Personal Hotspot'

    All 4.3 iPhones should have the option here. Whether you're carrier offers this facility with or without additional charge is something you'd have to ask them
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .

    I don't have it there either.
    Setting > general > network: (1) enable 3G ON (2) celular data ON (3) data roaming OFF (4) vpn -not conected- (5) wifi.

    That's all I swear...

    It's only there if it's carrier supported.
