3GS won't connect to iPad via personal hotspot!

3GS won't connect to iPad via personal hotspot! I use this all the time and it just stopped working yesterday , I have turned off/on both devices several times, tried turnin off/on personal hotspot and Bluetooth, but no luck. It connects for a minute then disconnects. Tethering works on my computer but not the iPad . Help?

Hello, Robtaube1903!


Thanks for posting. I'm sorry to hear your phone isn't connecting to your iPad's hotspot. Have you checked to make sure that the software is up to date on both devices? You can also try performing a soft reset by holding down the home button and the power button simultaneously until you see the screen powers off and you see the silver apple logo appear.
