    Reboot the iPhone. Same thing happened to me. Restarting my iPhone fixed it.

    I find my iPhone 4 has a hotspot timeout, toggle the hotspot on/off/on and wait a few seconds and it'll appear on the iPad networks screen.

    Any time you have an issue reboot the phone, that's common knowledge. If that doesn't deal with the issue make a genius apt. Good luck.

    Use bluetooth tethering. It uses less battery than wifi.

    Is bluetooth tethering slower than wifi?
