    Is there a way to enable the "Personal Hotspot" function on an iPhone 5, formerly AT&T, now unlocked and being used with Straight Talk. I've already done the T-Mobile SIM Swap so I could do MMS.

    At present, all I have is the non-stop spinning thing next to "Personal Hotspot" option under Settings>Cellular.

    That stinks... Any explanation as to why the little icon thing is just spinning? My wife has the exact same setup, but you can click hers and get the "Call AT&T message", I can't on mine...

    Probably just a glitch since the iPhone thinks you are using an AT&T SIM, so it's trying to check your account status with the Death Star.
