It's either something that has to be supported by the Carrier or having your 3G turned off doesn't give you that option. I don't have the option I don't have a data plan on the phone but I thought I would atleast get to see the settings. I guess I'll find out when I get a data plan in a week or so.

Ok, please help me out here. Probably very dumb question. I have unlimited data on our 4 iPhones on family plan. If we are traveling and grandson has iPad can he connect to our iPhones through hotspot without it costing me even more money. I sure don't want to lose unlimited. Thanks for all the help provided here.

If you haven't already updated to 4.3, you can jailbreak your phone and there are apps for purchase that will allow you to use your phone as a personal hotspot without paying AT&T a monthly charge.

I was facing the exact same situation, wondering if I should upgrade to 4.3 or just jailbreak 4.2.1 and install MyWi. I don't want to lose the unlimited data plan by upgrading to a tethering plan. That's the bottom line!
(I suppose that will happen when 4G data comes to ATT, but why rush it now with 3G data..?)
