Have 15gb mobile share plan and since Sunday all of my family's IPhone's and friends who have same plan can turn their hotspot but iPads etc cannot recognize them. Contacted AT&T and they don't know what do to. They are saying there isn't a problem. Updated to 6.0.1. Anyone else?
Solved! Go to Solution.

I have the same problem with my iPhone 5 on iOS 6.0.1. It started on Nov. 19. In the morning I was able to tether, in the afternoon I could not.
I worked with AT&T and Apple yesterday. After working my way through AT&T 1st level support, 2nd level support and a support manager, I have a case open with AT&T network engineering. Resetting network settings, restoring iOS, and reprovisioning my data plan all failed to resolve the issue. I stopped short of getting a replacement phone from Apple because that solution hadn't helped anyone else, according to the Apple store tech.
For what it's worth, my wife's iPhone 4 on iOS 5 is on the same shared data plan and the tethering works fine.
I posted more technical details with logs from my phone in the Apple forums yesterday:

A friend was having the same issue and we had a suspicion that it was related to FaceTime since that was the last thing that changed. I tried to just turn it off, but that didn't help. When he restored his phone, that toggle was in the off position, so I tried it again with a reboot and it worked. This was after two AT&T support sessions and one with Apple. He also had multiple support sessions with no resolution.

Thank you NV_Lady, I had the same problem and this solution worked for me also. This has lowered my blood pressure considerably.
