iPhone users who may be used to using the software's Personal Hotspot feature on "unauthorized" wireless networks may be in for an unpleasant surprise. 

Changes in iOS 7.1 have disabled the ability to manually edit tethering settings for unauthorized carriers.

The issue has lit up Apple support forums where unhappy users have complained in a thread that now boasts nearly 16,000 views and over 200 individual replies.

Users from the U.S. and other countries say that their tethering ability was immediately deactivated once they upgraded to the latest version of Apple's mobile operating system.
