Very appropriate video. I've been using the iPhone hotspot for a quite a while and this will save me having to show others how to set it up and use it.
Is it best to turn off the Hotspot on your phone when you are through using it or can you leave it on with out running down your battery, etc?
Marcia: I don't think it should affect the battery that much either way.
Can I assume that this will work for an iPad as well?
When my iPhone has Mobile Data turned off, Personal Hotspot is greyed out. Can I use P.H. with phone connected to wifi? In other words I want to create a secondary wifi network, not using cellular data at all. The purpose is to connect an AppleTV to the secondary network when it cannot "agree" to the initial network. (in this case a public library in NZ)
Rod: Yes, Personal Hotspot is for creating a Wi-Fi network with your mobile connection as its Internet access. There is no way to create a new network using another network with your iPhone.
Ethel: Yes, or anything that uses Wi-Fi, like handheld game devices, other iPhones, etc.
