    I just switched over to Verizon with the new iPhone 5. I tried setting up my personal hotspot, but none of my devices are recognizing in the list of available wi-fi connections. I've tried using my first generation iPad and MacBook Pro. Any ideas?

    Make sure its active on your account via the website. Reboot your phone. Then try again.

    Mine works great.

    I have the 4g share plan. It says "4G Mobile Hotspot Provisioning" under included features. I still don't see it in my wi-fi list.

    Settings, general, cellular

    Edit: sorry I misunderstood I thought you couldn't find hot spot feature.

    Edit 2: turn off wifi then turn on hotspot and it should ask do you want to use wifi hot spot.
