***Announcement: Welcome to the new Verizon Community! We have merged our Wireless and Fios Communities to bring you the best place to discuss any Verizon product or service, along with all things tech! We have many new features to discuss with you in the coming weeks, but first we want to make sure that all of you who have been active on either of our communities before are able to log in! For many of you, we have been able to merge your Wireless and Fios community accounts so all of your Community contributions are all in one place. If you were active in both communities and you previously used the same My Verizon account to log into both, you’re all set! You will be able to use those same credentials to access the new Community. If one of those accounts was with My Verizon and the other was a Community Member Only account, please use your My Verizon account to log in. Please note that we were only able to merge those accounts that were attributed to the same email address. If you only had one account on either Community, you can log into that account exactly as you have before. For some of our Fios Community members, you may have an issue logging in. If you had an account on the Fios Community and you’re having login issues, please use the Community Member Only login page and use the “Forgot my info” link to reset your password. Once you complete this, you should be able to log in normally. If you continue to have any further issues logging in, please email us at verizon.community.team@verizon.com and we’ll assist you to get you back in the Community! Keep an eye on the Community announcements - we can’t wait to show you what’s in store. The Verizon Community Team
How do I set up a personal hotspot?
AlDrake
Enthusiast

I've been trying for days now to get setup the personal hotspot but no success. I don't see either Ipad or Iphone anywhere so I can't begin to connect. I know I'm missing something but I just don't get it. I can connect to the local network fine but that's it. I was hoping someone can walk me through this so I can find out what I'm doing wrong.

Thanks

Thank you for your reply. I have since contacted phone support where I had help adjusting my account and reviewing if I really need to use Personal Hotspot. They were able to provide me with all I needed to know.

Thank you very much.

Thank you for reaching out to us, AlDrake. We're here to help get your hotspot up and running! With regards to your hotspot, what plan are you currently on? Are you able to activate the mobile hotspot in both your tablet or your phone, or do you get an error message when attempting to turn on the hotspot feature.
