    iPhone 8 tethering problems 7th Dec 17 at 7:01 PM
    Does anyone have problems with a personal hotspot disconnecting when making / receiving a phone call?

    4G Voice and Data is activated in settings.

    I think you will find that stopping data transfer during a call is normal operation, my 6S does it.

    It’s purely dependent on your network. Who are you with?

    It’s worth trying turning off 4G voice, leaving 4G data on. Both are in settings\mobile data\mobile data options\enable 4G\

    I use tethering a lot, I’m on 3 UK with an iPhone SE, and haven’t noticed the issue. I have 4G voice and data both turned on.

    I assume the settings here:

    nsert SIM and wait until you get coverage on the iD network.
    Go to settings, click on cellular, make sure LTE is chosen in voice and data.
    Choose cellular data network.
    Scroll down to personal hotspot.
    Beside APN type ‘internet’.

    Tally with what's under the APN settings on your iPhone?

    If iD Mobile are a MVNO on Three's network in Ireland (like they are over here in the UK) they may not support VoLTE/Supervoice which could explain why your connection drops out.

    Who is your network provider?
