    Default Personal hotspot not working on ipone 5
    I purchased this new 1 day ago with understanding that the plan they sold me would allow me a personal hotspot with the phone. I now find out from another verizon rep that my plan does not cover hotspot. Need to spend $30/month more to get that feature. Is there a app or will Jailbreaking allow me to use the hotspot function without coughing up another $30/month?

    Any advise would be helpful-

    If you can jailbreak you can get it for a one time fee of 20 dollars

    So if I can "Jailbrake my phone then I will be able to access personal hotspot. I imagine u can throw the warranty out the window. any other potential hassles? What do I need after jailbreaking? thanks kindly. I have spent all day thinking I had it enabled in the plan since the rep swore it was. hate to give up a new iphone5(bad karma)-

    U cannot jailbreak your iphone if your iphpone IOS is higher than 6.1.2,
    if you jailbreak your iphone later, in Cydia look for MyWi. this can help you personal hotspot

    Since I have 6.1.4 can I go back to 6.1.2? I do not currently have hotspot availability with my plan. I have to upgrade to different plan. Will mywi work with current plan once I jailbreak? I have read all I can in other posts but still am confused on how it all works- thanks for support(and post patience for newbie)
