    Personal Hotspot available free with iOS 6?
    Hey friends,

    Currently I'm using a jailbroken 4S. I have it jailbroken to be able to use the personal hotspot feature. A friend who recently upgraded to the iPhone 5 with iOS 6 told me that he now has the Personal Hotspot feature available. We are both using Verizon.

    I'm wondering if the new iOS or the new phone was the cause of this feature now showing up... or perhaps a combination of both?

    If it's just the iOS then I think I'll upgrade to 6... I just need the Personal Hotspot feature.

    Thanks for any input.

    Here in Australia we have had the Personal Hotspot feture for the last two IOS upgrades. Cant tell you how it rolls there in the US/UK but we are as they say "the lucky country" lol

    thanks, but yeah, I'm hoping for some input from some US users...
    preferably someone using a 4S with Verizon like me who has updated to iOS 6

    I'm using a 4s with Verizon. When i updated to ios6 my hotspot continued to work. It must be the plan though because my friend with the same phone and Verizon and the hotspot doesn't work on her phone.

    My personal hotspot has been working with Verizon since 5.1.1 and it continues to work with 6.0. I don't think the personal hotspot with Verizon works straight out of the box though. I had to turn it on through cellular services on my iPad 3. As far as I'm aware, it works with all Verizon data plans on the iPhone and iPad.

    If Verizon is like AT&T... no tethering if you're in the grandfathered unlimited data plan - you have to pay an extra charge or move to a limited data plan and they'll include it at no extra charge.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    looking for others who had a 4S with Verizon on 5.1.1 who had not paid Verizon for the Personal Hotspot capability and therefore did not have it...who then upgraded to iOS 6.

    would like to know if the Personal Hotspot option now shows up after the upgrade.
