    My iPhone 5 is on 6.1.2 and is Jailbroken in case there is a method to doing this with jailbreak.

    I'm just looking to make a connection with my phone under the name "Bestbuy" so I can get those exclusive items that are 30+ miles away from me.

    I tried personal hotspot under cellular setting but it seems to be asking me to call att or go to their website, I guess its not under my current plan and I would have to pay extra for it.

    Any way through jailbreaking then if there is no apple way of doing it?

    I'm obviously not gonna go into detail about jailbreaking here but can you give me a name at the very least? What would I use?

    JB - TetherMe, MyWi are two on iOS off the top of my head.

    Last I heard 3rd party tethering is a violation of the ToS/T&C so you may want to read up on that..

    I dont think you can do it with your phone anyway because iPhones force you to use a security key, and the fake hotspot wont work unless theres no security.

    I was told the security part doesnt matter at all as long as the name matches up. I'll report back here to confirm if you like.

    I assume you play the game too. Have you got any Nintendo items? I'm looking for Blocks and ? blocks for my room.
