    Do you have this feature enabled by your carrier?

    Alli is right. In order for it to work you must have it set up and paying for it through your carrier. Once they set it up on their end you will be good to go.

    You might not have realized it and do you have the same carrier now? You DO have to have this feature enabled by your carrier for iPhone.

    EDIT: This comes out of the IOS User Guide for IOS 6 and above.

    Personal Hotspot
    You can use Personal Hotspot (iPhone 4 or later) to share an Internet connection with a computer or other device—such as an iPod touch, iPad, or other iPhone—connected to your iPhone via Wi-Fi. You can also use Personal Hotspot to share an Internet connection with a computer connected to iPhone via Bluetooth or USB. Personal Hotspot works only if iPhone is connected to the Internet over the cellular data network.
    Note: This feature may not be available in all areas. Additional fees may apply. Contact your carrier for more information.
    Share an Internet connection: Go to Settings > General > Cellular and tap Set Up Personal Hotspot—if it appears—to set up the service with your carrier.

    Well so you now have your Personal Hotspot and it is working over the 3G cellular network? That is great and i am glad you stuck with it and sorted it out. I am still a bit surprized that your carrier is not charging you and had to set it up? Anyway you have a great day and glads to have you as part of the forums.
