    I'm trying to tether surface to my iPhone but its not even showing up in the wifi on the surface. Has anyone tried this yet?

    Yup. Had no issue seeing my wifes iPhone WiFi yesterday. Can you see the hotspot on other devices?

    I will give it a quick try and test with my iPhone. Although i did have a similar issue at work we have now many wireless LAN but the one I wanted wouldn't show up until I manually added the SSID and then it showed up in the list.

    Edit: Looks like since my move to t Mobile last week I don't seem to have tethering enabled anymore so will need to call them tomorrow to get it enabled.

    Okay resolved this Why can't i see my personal hotspot fm my iphone on my new surface - Microsoft Community

    Apparently surface doesn't like special characters in the SSID, removed the ' restarted the handset and now working.
