Recommended Solution

    • First, you have to make sure to erase or “forget” the saved wifi connection that belongs to the iPhone that’s not currently working. Click below for a guide  on how to do that depending on your device if you’re unsure of the steps:
    • Once you’ve completed that, take the iPhone 7 you’re trying to hotspot from and perform a Reset Network Settings.
      (Note: This will erase saved WiFi passwords on your device, so remember to reconnect to WiFi after this step).
      • Go to Settings > General and then tap on Reset.
      • Select Reset Network Settings.
    • Then go into Settings > Cellular > Personal Hotspot and change the WiFi password.
    • Turn Personal Hotspot ON.
    • Then connect to the “iPhone” internet connection that should be displayed now on the device you’re trying to connect from and enter the new password you configured.
  • If issue persists, try sharing your internet connection by plugging the iPhone directly into the computer you’re trying to connect to, then turning Personal Hotspot ON.

If these solutions don’t solve the problem, you may contact your service provider to ask and try more advanced solutions available. Also consider verifying your account or data subscription to ensure that it’s provisioned for mobile tethering services.
