I assume you have an iPhone? As far as I know, the Personal Hotspot option will not appear unless you have manually set the APN for tethering.
The APN for prepaid is 'http.globe.com.ph'. You can set it on Settings > General > Network > Cellular Data under Internet Tethering or Personal Hotspot. The option name depends on the iOS version.
For CloudFoneThrill430X users, simply go to Settings > Data usage, More... > Tethering and portable hotspot > Portable With-Fi hotspot - Check inbox.
Reminder: Do configure your Wi-Fi hotspot settings and make sure your Mobile Network's Data Setting is enabled when using your hotspot.
Liezel, yes its possible just go to settings. Wireless and networks. Tethering. Mobile tethering. And activate it! Chances are the signal will be Shared also so it may cause slow connection
I just bought an iPad 4 + 4G with prepaid globe sim subscribing to supersurf999 monthly. I went to globe store in sm marikina and the guard told me that only postpaid subscribers can avail settings for personal hotspot?
This is a discrimination! Why can't prepaid subscribers avail a personal hotspot settings thru an iPad? I demand a globe customer service manager to answer this question!
Uhm sir.? I'm newbie here , I got frustrated when my younger sister had "Personal Hotspot" option in settings of her iPhone 4. I'm a prepaid user , what should I do to have the same with her, and she's using another network's setting so I can't just copy and put it on my phone. Can you please give me some idea about getting things about "personal hotspot" ... i do also have an iPhone 4 . I already tried these Cellular Data Network Settings, then i rebooted, nothing has changed ... please help
can i use my personal hotpsot even if i don't have any unli registration??
Yes, you can! But standard data charges may apply.
Try the following;
Settings>General>Reset>Reset Network Settings and reboot handset.
Delete any data managing app. E.g. Onavo app, etc
If the steps mentioned above fails; do a Factory Reset.
Let me know if that helps!
bkt po no internet access? nka tether po ako at nka register sa unlisurf.
Hi. ito ginawa ko, im using Globe Prepaid & iPhone 5s iOS 7.0.4
1. Go to "Settings" app and press "Cellular"
2. Press "Cellular Data Network"
3. As you can see, Cellular Data's APN for prepaid is "http.globe.com.ph" pero naka "internet.globe.com.ph" siya by default which is the apn for postpaid users. Change it to "http.globe.com.ph"
4. Scroll ka sa baba and you can find the PERSONAL HOTSPOT: ung APN na nakalagay jan is still for postpaid, input mo ng "http.globe.com.ph"
5. Go back and turn OFF and ON mo yung "Cellular Data" switch mo. Gagana na yan.
Tinanong ko sa globe yan, maski sa twitter nila pero they insist na for postpaid lang talaga ang hotspot. Im using S4 and 5s and nakakapag hotspot naman ang S4 ko.
