Hey there @Tanaysha, we'll be happy to discuss how you would get hotspot on your iPhone.

Like our ACE @sandblaster said, you'll need to have a postpaid or PREPAID plan that includes mobile hotspot data as a feature. Without a plan with hotspot data, you won't be able to use a mobile hotspot even if your device support the feature. 

If you already have one of these plans, just our Apple support page to see how to set up a personal hotspot. You can also check your device's Settings > Personal Hotspot and turn on the Allow Other to Join switch. 

Please let us know if you have any other questions, we want to make sure you can use your mobile hotspot.
