iOS Beta 4.3 - Hotspot Question
So, I got in on the developer program and have the personal hotspot feature on my iPhone 4. However, it needs AT&T approval to be able to use? When Renee showed it off, it must have just worked because he's on a canadian carrier.
My question is mainly, is this tied to tethering? So if I call AT&T and enable tethering, will I be able to use the mobile hotspot?
So, I'll answer my own question here. In iOS 4.3, the tethering option has been combined together with the personal hotspot.
So, long story short, to use it on AT&T, the cost is going to be $15 for the internet tethering option.
On a side note, you can not pick up internet tethering without changing out your old iphone unlimted plan to the new 2gb max plan.
Works like a charm once you have tethering set up with AT&T though.

With the hot spot tethering, the possibility is there for way more data usage, but really, how many people are really going to be sucking down 5x the data via the relatively slow 3G wireless data speeds? Personally, I think AT&T is a bit deluded... but that's the way it works... and it's also why Baskin-Robins has 31 flavors - different folks with different needs/want/likes.
