    This setting option is not available for the iphone 5s. So I cannot configure the settings manually. Maybe that is whats wrong with my internet connection? Do you have instructions for the iphone 5s?

    I just don’t have a tab called Cellular Data Network. There is one called Cellular Network Data but that is under Usage so doesn’t apply here. Any suggestions?

    Hi. I use an iphone 5c, and I’m currently a T-mobile customer. I tried following the steps listed above; however, I couldnt find the Internet Tethering option. Under Cellular Data, I have LTE Setup and MMS. Is LTE same as internet tethering? Also, video streaming is very slow on my iphone, is there any way to speed it up?
