Please Help: no internet on MBP (10.8.3) via iPhone 5 (6.1.4) personal hotspot, usb or bluetooth

Hello all,
I used to be able to get Internet on my MBP (mid 2009 13, OSX 10.8.3) through iPhone 5 (ios 6.1.4) using either USB or bluetooth. Now, the personal hotspot LINK between my MBP and Iphone via bluetooth is ACTIVE (the blue bar says there's a connection), but there's NO INTERNET CONNECTION. USB tethering doesn't work at all (no blue bar).
Because the personal hotpot still works between my iPhone 5 and iPad 2, I suspect that the problem is with my mac. I've tried re-pairing my Mac and the phone a couple of times. I've reset iPhone network settings. Nothing I tried helped. Can someone help please?
Thanks, Shiang

I was asking whether you could tether via Wi-Fi. I take it that you can't.
Run the Network Diagnostics assistant. How far do you get?

    In the Music tab of iTunes, do you have 'Include Voice Memos' checked?

  • PLEASE HELP ME FIND A GOOD CAR PLUG FOR MY iPHONE

    Alright guys, I have been through 3 different plugs to connect my iphone to my car to play music, and I am a bit ticked. So i figured I would ask the Apple Discussion Boards so you guys can tell me the best audio/charger combo for my iPhone. Here is what happened with each of my previous plugs...
    The first one was just a regular ordinary headphone plug that plugged from my iphones headphone slot to my car's auxiliary slot. It worked for a while but then the audio only started coming out through the right side of my car speakers occasionally, and I know for sure it is not my car that made the problem because my radio and CD's play fine through both speakers.
    The second one is a "Kensington LiquidAUX Auxiliary Car Kit with Remote for iPod and iPhone". First off the remote that it came with didn't work properly. But here comes the worse part that is so annoying. This problem got progressively worse by the way.... a lot of times the plug would think that it unplugged itself for some strange reason and the music would stop as well as the charging, but then 1 millisecond later it would think it was plugged back in, and although it starts charging again, the music doesn't play again until I press play. Don't tell me to make sure it is plugged in securely because trust me my friends, I have tried everything possible to get this to work. Keep in mind I am driving...so it is a very bad idea to be messing with my phone to press the play again. And lately it has been getting so bad that I actually have to unplug the plug from my iphone and then plug it back in and press play, which is incredibly annoying. This happens about once a minute OR MORE now a days. Also, it makes a really annoying "whirrling" sound whenever I am using it. By the way, I even turned Airplane mode on, and the exact same problems still happened. So a summary of this: this audio/charger combo is a failure.
    My 3rd plug I decided to try a normal headphone to aux plug again like the first except this time by a better brand, Griffin. But oh wait, the exact same problem happened that the first one had.
    Ok guys, so what I really want for you to do for me is PLEASE HELP ME FIND A GOOD CAR PLUG FOR MY iPHONE.
    Here is what I am looking for in my plug:
    Plays music through my car's speakers AND charges at the same time;
    I would prefer if it wasn't an FM transmitter because those tend to lose audio quality compared to direct plugins, unless you know of an amazing FM transmitter where you don't lose audio quality;
    And finally, I want my plug to ACTUALLY WORK WITHOUT GLITCHES
    Also, it would be nice if the plug that you refer to me, you actually own, so I know that you have tested it out before and that it works great.
    Any HELP would be very much appreciated, thank you.

    i thought about going the same route you did, but when I started looking at the prices of everything, I decided it was a better idea to just get a new stereo that can play and charge my iPhone.
    After a lot of comparing, looking and price checking, I decided to go with the Alpine IDA-X100. This is a media player only device (no cd player built in) and it has been great. It has an awesome interface and dial setup that let's you go through your music just as if it were on an iPod. It even has a small color screen that displays the album artwork for you. My car has a factory BOSE system in it and the Alpine head unit even managed to improve the sound quality. Go see you local alpine dealer (or best buy) and check it out. The supplied cable charges the phone and plays music too. Your iPhone will give you an error message when you plug it in, saying that the accessory was not designed for iPhone, but if you just click no it works great.

    You might be able to re-enable your account via this page : http://appleid.apple.com, then 'reset your password'
    You might then need to log out of your account on your phone by tapping on your id in Settings > iTunes & App Store and then log back in so as to 'refresh' the account on it
    For your security questions, if you don't have a rescue email address, or you don't have access to the email account, then you will need to contact iTunes Support / Apple to get the questions reset.
    Contacting Apple about account security : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5699 - you can also try this link to get your account re-enabled if the above doesn't work.
    When they've been reset you can then use the steps half-way down this page to update/add a rescue email address for potential future use : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5312

    After searching, found a few answers and tried one last thing-- allowing Safari to accept Cookies. I never use Safari so never changed any settings in it ever. However, I guess an update along the way turned off cookies in it and that was the blockage. Once I allowed Safari to use cookies I was able to redeem the gift card. SO, glad this board is here for these types of questions!!!!

  • Please help: Mouse cursor on MBP repeatedly freezing for a few seconds

    Hi all
    I bought a MBP last week, and today I started experiencing problems with the mouse cursor. No matter whether I'm using the trackpad or an external mouse (I've tried using both a wired Mighty Mouse and a wireless Logitech), when I'm moving the cursor it keeps freezing for a few seconds (perhaps less than a second), and then I "regain" control of it, only for it to freeze again after a short while.
    The only thing that I can think of that might have something to do with this is that I replaced the 2GB of Apple RAM with 4GB of OWC RAM a couple of days ago. Can this be the reason?
    Please help me, as this problem renders the computer impossible to use:(
    Thanks in advance
    Daniel
    PS: I'm running Mac OS 10.5.1 and I've got the Keyboard Freeze Update Installed.

    Hi.
    I have a similar problem, however I realized it is somehow related to weather the airport is on. If I turn it off, there are no freezes. It is weird, and I'm going to go with it to Apple.

  • Can someone please help me?  I am having trouble activating my iPhone.

    I attach my iPhone to my computer through the USB and the cradle. iTunes opens fine and it shows my iPhone. When the iPhone window opens I get the following error. We could not complete your iTunes store request. The network connection timed out. Make sure your network settings are correct and your network is active , then try again. Can someone please help me with thin. I have tried to contact apple support but havn't been able to get anyone. If you go to my profile and read my bio there is a link to a site where I sell my concert photographs. My site is www.davextreme.photoreflect.com or my myspace is www.myspace.com/davextreme1. I would be willing to send an 8X10 of any musician you want to anyone who helps me solve this problem.

    "The network connection timed out. Make sure your network settings are correct and your network is active , then try again."
    This is usually the type of message you get when you have NO internet connection. It can also happen if the site that you are trying to contact is experiencing troubles or is just to busy at the time. Are you sure your connection is working properly?

    The only way to locate/disable/erase any lost/stolen iPhone/iPod Touch is through Find My Phone or a similar app. However, this requires that Find My Phone be setup/activated, on your phone, before it was lost/stolen. You would then login at iCloud.com & try to locate it. This requires the phone be turned on & have an Internet connection. There is no other way to locate a lost/stolen iPhone. Apple can't/won't help you, nor will your carrier. Report the loss to the Police, your carrier & Insurance company. Change all of your passwords, especially your Apple ID/iCloud password NOW!
    If your carrier offers Blacklisting &amp; they Blacklist the phone, it will be unusable as a phone.
    If locked with a passcode, and running iOS 7.0, & Find My Phone turned on/activated, then phone cannot be re-activated or the passcode removed without knowing your Apple iD/Password. It will be nothing but a useless paperweight.
    If not running iOS 7.0, the phone can be forced into recovery mode & restored.
