    Now there's a better option, you can install tetherme from Cheka for 99 cents to hacktivate personal hotspot on 4.3

    THIS IS IGNORANT...you're better off to pay 30, and get unlimited, if you stil lhave it...I never left, and you can't be grandfathered out...if you do this, you lose unlimited, you're better off to buy a 2GB 25$ a month plan from att...don't lose your money....55 total, rather than 2 gb, which I use 3-4.5 a month of my iphone, so I'd already be at 55 a month, 3 GB over the 2 allotted...people don't use their brains...as everything keeps getting more and more HD it takes more and more bandwidth

    Except that if you take into account the fact you have to jailbreak the iPhone to be able to tether/hotspot. Those of us that aren't comfortable with that could take a different route. Using your example of the unlimited $30...... For $15 more a month you can hotspot and get 4 gigs of data and not have to jailbreak the iPhone. The average person on the unlimited plan (like I was) would never exceed 4 gigs anyway so for piece of mind I'd go the legit path for the $15. Also pointing out with the data pro plan you can disable it one month and start it back up another anytime you like.

    Technically, if u know how to go about doing it, u don't need to pay for an additional data contract for hotspur tethering. ;-)
    IMO that is a complete waste for data u already paying for. U paying more thn double the amount. I am so glad I'm still covered under grandfather clause for unlimited data. I can't imagine having to pay these silly contracts for data. I'm always using data n would exceed probaly even the highest plan. Keep lookin around and u will see there are ways around it. They are spanking people with these nonsense data contracts for hotspots.,,,*****

I use my iPad at home for surfing, also at seminars where there is free WIFI anyway, and at work, I don't need the internet since I have it on my work computer, so I am using my iPad for other productivity tasks. So for me, I am not messing with what works. Even so, it still would be fun to be able to use my iPad at work to browse during lunch, but I'll live!!
    Actually u can w/out having to pay $$$ out da a$$..lol just keep searching the threads n forums n u will find the way ;-)
