AT&T Offering Mobile Hotspot on iPhone 4 for $45, Or Use MyWi for Free
Posted on March 3, 2011 by eli courey
Apple announced yesterday that iOS 4.3, which will be available March 11, will bring personal hotspot capability to GSM iPhone 4s. AT&T confirmed to Phone Scoop that the company will support the mobile hotspot feature on launch, unlike the over year delay on USB/Bluetooth tethering support. To use the personal hotspot feature, customers will need to subscribe to the DataPro 4GB data plan for $45 a month.
If you would rather get this feature for free, there is an app for jailbroken iPhones called MyWi which lets you turn your iPhone into a Wi-Fi access point. MyWi gives you the ability to use your iPhone’s 3G connection with your iPad or any computer with Wi-Fi. It also enables Internet tethering over USB and Bluetooth.
