A lot of BUZZ is going on about Reliance JIO 4G and people are making a mess by jumping in to get a single SIM by which they can enjoy unlimited HD VoLTE calling and utilizing free Internet. I have earlier posted about Reliance 4G on how you can get a SIM for yourself or any of your family member. All the devices that support Reliance JIO 4g and even using Reliance JIO 4G on 3G phones.

So I even tried to get my hands on it but I was not keen enough to invest Rs.3500 approx. to get those buggy LYF phones. So I waited till the time my iPhone SE gets full support for this and yesterday i got my hands on a single SIM but I had to pay Rs.300 extra as a bribe kind of thing to get a single SIM.

And today my Reliance JIO 4G got activated. But there was a problem I was not able to use the Personal Hotspot feature as the option was missing in my iPhone SE while using Reliance JIO 4G but on my Airtel number it was there, so I just made a search to find a solution ad got to know many people were facing this problem.

Luckily a solution was posted and it worked. So check below steps on getting that missing Personal Hotspot feature on your iPhone or other iOS device while using Reliance JIO 4G.
