    Hey,

    Yesterday I noticed that the Personal Hotspot feature isn't visible after I updated to the iOS5 GM. Anyone else having this problem?

    It worked fine through all the other betas (except for the one that had it disabled, beta 4 I think?).

    Thanks.

    Noticed the same thing. Did a reset of network settings then a reboot and it came back.

    It worked for me. Go to General -> Network and enable it. It will then appear at the main settings menu again.

    Which carrier?

    It's there for me, I'm with Optus.

    Wouldn't be surprised to see a stack of carrier settings updates pushed out soonish.

    Same issue here, I am running iOS 5 GM jailbroken tethered on an iPhone 4 32GB with preserving BB 03.10.01.

    I got a 4S yesterday and noticed the option was missing despite my carrier supporting it. To enable the option I had to go to Settings > Network > Personal Hotspot and switch it on with my own password. Once doing that it appears on the first Settings screen between Wi-Fi and Notifications.
