Re: Connecting a device to my personal hotspot

@Della We need more info please.

Types of devices, error messages, can anything else connect etc?

Make sure the password is correct and remember it is case sensitive. You could always change the password to something memorable to you.

No, that's fine as long as you enter it exactly the same on the device you are connecting.

The only other thing I can think is that you don't have iData on your account. Call customer services to check on 202
