    I have upgraded my iPhone4 to IOS 5.1
    but i can't find the "Personal Hotspot"
    Isn't it suppose to be in the Settings? or i have to set it up in order for it to show?

    thanks in advance,

    To fix the Personal Hotspot missing at first retype the access point name through your Internet Tethering settings:

    Go to Settings > General > Network > Cellular Data Network.

    Click Reset Settings.

    Type in an access point name

    Go back to Network. Put Cellular Data to ON.

    Personal Hotspot should appear on the bottom of the same screen.

    You need to have paid for it through your carrier and have it set up before it shows up on the main Settings screen.

    If you go to Settings > General > Network, you can set it up there.

    Hope this helps! :)
