    My iPad 4G works as a personal hotspot, WiFi, bluetooth, and USB cable.

    I can also confirm that my Verizon 4G iPad can also be used as a hot spot. I have only tried bluetooth.

    Verizon will allow the free use of an iPad as a hotspot. AT&T charges a fee for the service.

    I have UK Vodafone 3G. No wifi hotspot facility - very disappointing.

    Do you find the data slow on AT&T?

    That's interesting! You're the first person I've come across that has the personal hotspot on their iPad 3 on Vodafone UK.

    Did you purchase your iPad 3 through Vodafone? Did you have to contact Vodafone to get the hotspot functionality enabled?
