Just realised my personal hotspot has gone from iphone4, was there earlier before number ported to TM. Tried resetting network settings and syncing phone still not there. Any ideas?

Hi There

Have you setup your phone again with the Tesco Mobile SIM in through ITunes.

We support hotspot and don't restrict so it should work

Yes I have synced the phone with the TM sim in it also reset network settings and even changed the name of the phone and it's still not there. It was working yesterday when I was on Meteor before the number ported. Now when I go settings\general\network there is no personal hotspot tab.

Only thing I can think of is that you may need our APN in the Internet Tethering section of the General-> Network-> Mobile Data Network area of settings.

APN is tescomobile.liffeytelecom.com


Note Personal Hotspot is in the root menu of Settings fourth after Airplane Mode - WiFi - VPN

I had the same issue until I found this post, on an unlocked iPhone 4 originally from another Irish operator, new TM prepay SIM, new number (not ported). I had tried everything, including a wipe and setup as a new iPhone.

Adding the APN to the Internet Tethering section caused the Personal Hotspot option to appear.

(One thing worth noting is that the option didn't appear immediately, I had to go out of the Network page and go back in before it showed. Similarly, deleting the APN removed the option, but that wasn't immediate either).

Yes I manually entered the settings and it reappeared. Syncing alone isn't enough.

Hi jesz1987,

Did you first go to Settings -> General -> Network -> Mobile Data Network and add the APN "tescomobile.liffeytelecom.com" ?

After this you need to come out of the menu fully then go back in and the personal hotspot option should then appear in the Settings -> General -> Network section.

Hi jesz1987,

Just to confirm this is Tesco mobile Ireland. If you are a Tesco UK customer you will need to contact them directly.
