iOS 4.3 HotSpot Rogers (Ontario) 3G Outage Issues

by on March 9th, 2011

For those of you trying to get Personal HotSpot working with Rogers in Ontario but are receiving a “Contact Rogers to activate HotSpot” message, there is currently a province wide 3G outage which is affecting the ability to activate HotSpot on your iPhone. I’ve been told to wait until tomorrow to test the Personal HotSpot feature on the iPhone.

    According to Rogers most of Ontario is experiencing 3G data or voice issues. This may be intermittent in certain areas. I’m downtown Toronto and have had no 3G service for 5 hours, however, my 3G shows 5 bars.

    All working fine in Ottawa. Using The Blutooth option. Ver y effective.

    Can a wifi only iPad connect to an iPhones mobile hotspot ?

    Usually this means the tethering SOC has not been added to your account properly. Now if you have already been able to tether successfully before this it’s probably not the SOC issue and could be an outage but everything is working fine here in Oshawa. Connected over Wifi to my iphones hotspot just fine. Probably one of the best features on the device, can’t believe they took so long to release it.

    I think the Bluetooth option is part of the tethering feature (the other tethering method being USB) that was already available before 4.3. What’s new about the “hotspot” feature in 4.3 is that it’s via wi-fi. I’m interested to hear whether it works with a wi-fi-only iPad, because tethering does not.
