    Anybody else here is upset at the fact that personal Hotspots are not available with the iPad 3G?

    It isn't on the 3GS neither, but bluetooth tethering works... Close enough...

    I am that my 3gs cant do it, well I know it can I did it with JB, but I think the update should have included wifi tethering with 3gs, not paying more money only to use via BT!

    On my iPhone 3GS, if I go to settings>general>network it tells me about Internet tethering over Bluetooth, wifi and USB cable.Is it actually like the personal hotspot feature or not.If I click it, it tells me that I need to contact my provider, which is a romanian carrier.

    Sadly, cell providers have control over tethering. To enable that feature, you have to pay some extra cash to you provider. In my case, with Rogers in Canada, it is enabled at no extra fees if you have a data plan of at least 1Gig.

    BT tethering is a lot slower than wifi tethering. Faster speeds with wifi ;-)

    I don't need to tether that often - I go to several places with hotspots available, but I do tether at work (severely crippled/blocked sites) during lunch, or the rare times at home if the cable messes up. There's no way I'm giving up my unlimited plan and drop to 2 gigs a month, *plus* then pay another $20 just for the privilege to tether? MyWi is a real lifesaver :)

    I was enjoying tethering until I received the dreaded email from AT&T. They are going to up my data plan on the 16th if don't stop tethering. Anyone else get this message?
