IPhone :: When Connect To A Personal Hotspot Via Bluetooth It Disconnects The Wifi

Jun 1, 2012

I know this has been working before, and I really need to connect my iPad via Bluetooth to my iPhone so that I can then use the Wireless via my iPhone. Unfortunately, every time I connect to the iPhone via Bluetooth the WiFi on the iPhone disconnects.

Info:
iPhone 4S, iOS 5.1.1

IPhone :: Can't Access Personal Hotspot Over Bluetooth With Another 4s

Jun 1, 2012

I have an iPhone 4S, running iOS 5.1.1. (Though this issue has existed since 4.3) I enable Personal Hotspot on the iPhone. Bluetooth and Wifi are turned on.

My iPad 2 (running iOS 5.1.1) sees the iPhone in the list of available Bluetooth devices, connects to the iPhone, and voila! The iPad is tethering my iPhone's internet connection. When the two disconnect from one another (like when I leave the house). I simply pick up the iPad when I return, go to Settings>General>Bluetooth and tap my iPhone in the list of available devices, and (as long as my iPhone is within range) the iPad connects, and I'm online again. Painless! The problem arises when I try to connect my iPod touch or spare iPhone 4 to the Personal Hotspot of my iPhone 4S via bluetooth. I enable Personal Hotspot on the iPhone 4S. Bluetooth and Wifi are turned on.

I pick up my iPod touch. Bluetooth is enabled, but the iPhone 4S does not appear in the list of available Bluetooth devices. I pick up my spare iPhone 4. Bluetooth is enabled, but the iPhone 4S does not appear in the list of available Bluetooth devices. The problem is, if I want this iPod touch or spare iPhone (acting as an oversized iPod touch) to access my Personal Hotspot, I have to unlock my iPhone 4S, go to Settings>Personal Hotspot and wait for the iDevices to connect; something I don't have to do with my iPad. Additionally, Personal Hotspot connections made over Wifi use far more power on both devices than Bluetooth.

The weird thing is, there was a week or two (before updating to iOS 5.0) that my iPod touch was able to see my iPhone 4, connect to it via Bluetooth, and tether off the Personal Hotspot painlessly without me ever having to unlock the iPhone, and open Settings. To be thorough, I tried using my iPhone 4 (and even an old iPhone 3GS running 4.3) as the 'host' devices for my Personal Hotspot, and every time the iPad had no issues connecting, but all the other iPhones saw no available Bluetooth devices.

IPhone :: IPad Won't Connect To Personal Hotspot?

May 6, 2012

I have an iPhone 4S that I use as a personal hotspot for my iPad when I'm away from home. My bf has an iPhone 4 running iOS 5.1 that will automatically connect to my personal hotspot without me having to do anything with my 4S. My iPad however requires that I unlock my 4S, go to the personal hotspot settings page and then it'll connect. I'm trying to figure out why the iPhone 4 connects to the personal hotspot automatically when the iPad won't. Both connect via wifi. Bluetooth is too slow with the personal hotspot, so I just don't use it.

Info:
iPad 2, iOS 5.1

Motorola Xoom :: 3G Constant Disconnects When Used As Hotspot?

May 10, 2011

A similar issue has been brought up before in the forum, but not quite the same issue I am having... I have seen it discussed at length on the Droid X orums,https://supportforums.motorola.com/thread/32744?tart=0&tstart=0https://supportforums.motorola.com/thread/36262?start=0&tstart=0with no resolution... so, maybe some of you know some tricks to get the 3G connection stable when using the Xoom as an mobile hotspot...I originally had a 3G MiFi device, that worked great for about 6 months... after which time, it would drop its connection if there was moderate usage by any more than just one connected device... and that has been well documented on Verizon forums, although they had no solution for it.

I had this device because regular high speed connections are not available at my house, and I'm less than a mile from a Verizon tower, in a low density population area... when connected I usually have over a 2Mb connection, and great signal... not bad for being on cellular...So, all that being said, when the Xoom came out, and I saw that hotspot was available at no extra charge, I jumped at it... a great new tablet to use, and, what I thought would be, a hotspot that no longer lost connection, unfortunately that was not the case, and I think connection issues are worse now with the Xoom, than they ever were with the MiFi.If I enable the hotspot, have only one computer connected to it, and only browse 1 tab at a time, while not downloading or doing anything else internet related, the connection holds up just fine... yesterday my wife got a new laptop, and I was able to run all updates, and get all her software downloaded and installed without issue, and that was over 600MB of data, at least, but, while doing the downloads, I made sure that I did nothing else on the internet.

When I finished, my wife started surfing the internet... both of us use tabbed browsing quite a bit... but she had only opened maybe 3 tabs, and at that point the 3G symbol on the xoom went away, after a couple seconds came back, that after a couple seconds went away again... and this repeated over and over until I reset the xoom. Then the Xoom was fine for maybe 10 minutes, before it started doing it again. And, this happens regardless of what device is connected.After trying numerous things from the Droid X forums about this issue, and discovering that none of them work, I thought, well... maybe the tower has issues... so I brought it to work today... same issue, I opened MSN.com and opened about 10 tabs from there, just various news stories that I wanted to read about... and it was fine at first, but, after looking at a couple stories, I decide to visit this forum as well, but when I tried, I could not... so I looked at my Xoom and saw that the 3G icon was going away and coming back again, just like before.
