The other day I updated to iOS 5 and immediately noticed my Personal Hotspot menu had vanished. Since I was headed out of town soon I needed to figure out what the issue was and fix it. I looked high and low. Then it dawned on me what to do.
If you’re paying for the iPhone’s Personal Hotspot feature and saw this after updating to iOS 5 you should proceed to the next step. If not, you should probably go do something else.
Settings –> General –> Reset –> Reset Network Settings
The go to Settings –> General –> Network –> Personal Hotspot. Tap in, turn the feature on and off, then go back to the Settings menu.
Voila! Personal Hotspot is back!
