    Has anyone else in the UK managed to get the personal hotspot to work?

    I have a t-mobile data sim on a £15 a month data plan, i got them to add tethering for another £5 a month, not sure if this is correct or not but nothing is showing up in the settings for the personal hotspot.

    I've reset my network connections a couple of times to see if this pulls down new network settings but nothing.

    Just need a bit of help with this as I want to get it working...:

    Dear all,

    to resolve this problem you should complete following steps:

    1. Download operators list from here
    2. Look for most modern profile of your operator (looks like http://appldnld.appl...xxxx.ipcc)
    3. Download this profile (ipcc file)
    4. Close iTunes if it's opened and running
    5. Open Terminal
    6. Put and execute following command: defaults write carrier-testing -bool true
    7. Close Terminal
    8. Connect your new iPad via cable
    9. Run iTunes
    10. Press and hold option key while clicking "Check for Update"
    11. In dialog window point to the downloaded ipcc file (downloaded on step 3)
    12. Wait until synchronization will be completed.
    13. Disconnect iPad
    14. Reboot iPad
    15. On the iPad open Settings > General > Network >
    16. Switch on the Personal Hotspot setting
    17. Personal Hotspot should appear in Settings and should function normally.
    18. Enjoy your life!

    Good luck!!!

    You need just to copy the URL of your operator's profile from XML
    and to paste it in address bar of your browser to download it.

    Can you help a little?

    I use Three UK. I can only fund Hutichson_UK but the carrier settings are numbered version 4.0 and a version 3.2 for productType iPad. I guess I want the iPad file but why is it not numbered version 12.0 like it should be?

    Also, what happens when carrier update 12.1 is released officially?

    3 will be supporting personal hotpot but there is a bug in ios 5.1 that is not showing the option to enable it.

    3 have said they are working with apple to release an update to fix this and should be out in April.
