I can't figure out why Personal hotspot tethering isn't enabled on a SIM free iPhone
So, I just received a SIM free iPhone via Fed Ex from Apple.
Opened it, used it for a day, and generally happy with it. I'm coming from both Android and Windows phones though, and some of the limitations and constrictions that Apple puts in place are irritating, but nothing I can't live with.
Until I came across this: under Cellular > Personal Hotspot > I get a popup note to contact AT&T to enable hotspot sharing on my account.
Again, this is on a SIM free, fully unlocked new iPhone 6S device, that I inserted an AT&T SIM card into. I can't edit the cellular data or APN settings or adjust other cellular settings.
But mainly, I can't get personal hotspot to work, even though I have a generous data plan, just like I could on unlocked carrier free Androids.
