How do I set up my device as a mobile hotspot?
Richardro
Member

I recently switched over to the More Everything plan and wish to enable mu iPhone 5s so that it can be used as a mobile hotspot. How do I do this (e.g.. what settings do I need to change on my iPhone). Also: Is it a one-time setup (enable it and then just leave it alone and enabled always) or do I go through the enabling process only for the times when I"ll actually be using the iPhone as a hoy spot?

Thanks for reading this and any replies.

Hi Richardro,

We are so excited to hear of your interest in the Personal Hotspot feature! Click here http://www.verizonwireless.com/support/iphone-5s/#Mobile Hotspot for the instructions to setup the Hotspot on the device. You will only have to setup the device and account once. You may have to turn the personal hotspot off/on when using the feature, per it may stop broadcasting the Wi-fi signal after long period of inactivity.
