Re: How do I enable personal hotspot on iPhone 4

you need to jailbreak your iPhone since apple doesn't recognise giffgaff as an official network carrier.

No, once you put the giffgaff sim back in the hotspot app won't be enabled.

Apple don't recognise giffgaff as an official network and therefore won't let giffgaff or you tether from their products.

The only way to do so is to jailbreak your device.

Re: How do I enable personal hotspot on iPhone 4

Unless your iPhone is jailbroken you unfortunately won't be able to set up a personal hotspot on your device. The reason for this is Apple does not recognise giffgaff as a mobile network and so unless your iPhone is jailbroken it's the only method available.

 

Please also note that any goodybags other than the £7.50 and £10 goodybag is prohibited as this is classed as tethering which is strictly against giffgaff's terms of service.

Jailbreak the phone and then go onto Cydia. Search for TetherME and install it. This will enable the Personal Hotspot option as if it were normal.

As people have said jailbreak but if you use to much data they stop your account and might even ban you! Not really worth it dude
