What happened/went wrong?
It's definitely possible to configure a personal hotspot and have other wifi devices connect to it to share the phone's internet connection.
First step is to make sure that the phone itself can connect to the internet.
Then configure the personal hotspot.
Then connect devices (e.g. laptop) to the phone's personal hotspot and see that they can connect to the internet.
Bear in mind that a laptop will most likely use a lot more data than the phone itself so you could easily use up your data allowance quicker than usual.

Hope this helps.

You need to look at the video linked from the instructions that I linked to earlier.
This problem is due to the stupid way that Apple do things.
The video explains how to get around this and complete the configuration of the personal hotspot.

Hope this helps.

Great. So you have the hotspot working and can connect to the internet through it from your laptop?
