AT&T to launch Personal Hotspot with iOS 4.3?

Verizon iPhone 4 owners have been lucky when it comes to wireless tethering as the PersonalHotspot feature is exclusive to iPhone 4 owners on Big Red's network.AT&T, however, might be preparing to launch Personal Hotspot forits users as well. The carrier reportedly agreed to provisioning thefeature for iOS 4.3 beta 3 for a developer.



The update will be made publiclyavailable with iOS 4.3, which is rumored to come out at the end of the month.The feature might put even more pressure on AT&T's network as itallows for up to 5 devices to wirelessly tether to the iPhone.Currently, Verizon charges an extra $20 a month for Wi-Fi tetheringand AT&T will probably introduce a fee as well. In comparison, userswho chose to jailbreak their iPhone have the option to use the MyWiapp, which mimics the Personal Hotspot functionality and comes at aone-time charge of $20.
