Set Hotspot on your iPhone

Saw many people asking this... it's simple how to set up hotspot using iPhone

 

Go to Settings > Cellular > Cellular Data Options > Cellular Network, enter "webe" in the APN settings for hotspot 

 

You may want to exit the Settings app (or even restart phone) and relaunch to see it 

 

I dunno about you but this works for me
