The iPhone's Personal Hotspot feature transforms your phone into a mini Wi-Fi hotspot that can share its Internet connection with other nearby devices. Normally, using Personal Hotspot is as simple as going into the Settings app and turning the feature on.
Step 1: Restart Your iPhone
Step 2: Try Cellular Settings

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Tap Cellular.
  3. Tap Personal Hotspot.
  4. Move the Personal Hotspot slider to on/green.
  5. Go back to the main Settings screen and you may see Personal Hotspotlisted right under Cellular and above Notifications. If so, the problem is solved. If not, try the next step.

Step 3: Reset Network Settings

  1. Tap Settings.
  2. Tap General.
  3. Scroll all the way to the bottom and tap Reset.
  4. Tap Reset Network Settings.
  5. In the pop-up warning, tap Reset Network Settings.

Step 4: Check Phone Name

  1. Tap Settings.
  2. Tap General.
  3. Tap About.
  4. Look at the Name menu. If the name is different than what you were expecting, tap Name.
  5. On the Name screen, tap the X to delete the current name and type in the old one.

Step 5: Update Carrier Settings, If Available

  1. Tap Settings.
  2. Tap General.
  3. Tap About.
  4. If updated settings are available, a prompt will appear on screen. Follow the instructions.

Step 6: Update APN Settings
Step 7: Restore From Backup
Step 8: Contact Apple
Hope this above tips helps.
