I have set up a database in Catalog.  I have downloaded Collector for ArcGIS onto my iPhone.  How do I get this GDB on to my phone to start collecting data?  I have tried following the steps in this tutorial Prepare your data in ArcGIS for Desktop—Collector for ArcGIS | ArcGIS but when I get to the Share As > Service > Choose a Connection option I don't know where to go.  I have to be missing something but don't know what.

Have you signed into ArcGIS Online from ArcMap? File > Sign In

If you haven't signed in, when you go to choose a connection there won't be an option to choose "My hosted services".

You need*  access to ArcGIS Online or Portal for ArcGIS.

*could possibly fudge something in offline mode and haven't read about anyone trying that.
