AT&T spokesperson Seth Bloom confirmed to Phone Scoop via email that the carrier will support the mobile hotspot feature in iOS 4.3 once it becomes available on March 11. Bloom said, "To utilize this feature, customers will need to subscribe to the DataPro 4GB/$45 tethering data plan." The DataPro plan is the same one that's required for users wishing to tether their iPhone to a laptop. The mobile hotspot feature will allow the iPhone to be used to create a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot and provide Internet access to other devices.

Lets compare this to Sprints

AT&T = 4GB for $45

Inferior network and phone

Sprint = Unlimited for $30

Better network, better phone (EVO/EPIC) and $15 cheaper a month.

No brainer.
You got the inferior phone and network thing backwards.

ATT's network is faster and has better coverage. Also, ATT's network isn't some dead-end technology that is going to be phased out.

The iPhone 4 > The EVO and especially the Epic. The retur...
huh? there's no iPhone 4 with mobile hotspots on Sprint! no comparison.

Or... you can just pay a $20 1 time fee and tether unlimited...

Jailbreak... then in Cydia, search MyWi.

Hey AT&T, I have a better Idea...

Let us add on Mobile Hotspot for $20.00/month to our unlimited plan and give us 2gb for tethering.
sorry sir, we can't do that. it would interfere with our plan of slowly taking away people's grandfathered unlimited plans
