On my main settings screen under Airplane mode and Wi-Fi, Personal Hotspot wasn’t showing so I just assumed my carrier (Virgin Mobile Canada) was blocking it. Turns out the reason it wasn’t showing was it wasn’t turned ON under Settings->General->Network->Personal Hotspot (iOS5). Once I turned it on, it showed up on the main settings screen.
For iOS6, you should find Personal Hotspot ON/OFF under Settings > Cellular > Personal Hotspot (listed below Cellular Data and Data Roaming).
It’s available via USB, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
Sorry I doubted you, Virgin Mobile. 😉
