    Other than activating it via ATT, no, not on a non-jb phone.

    I am thinking there may be using a similar method to this.

    http://www.icopybot.com/blog/enable-multitouch-gestures-on-ipad-without-jailbreaking.htm

    This is a line item change in the ipad code to enable multi-finger gestures. It simply tells the ipad to turn it on because Apple left the programming imbedded in 4.3

    Anyway, my screen looks like this

    I am thinking there is probably a similar code change to make the iphone turn on the hotspot. Just need to find it

    There is, it's called TetherMe. It involves flipping a bunch of flags and and setting up an APN.

    Yes but that requires jailbreak and if i did that I would prefer mywi... plus i am on 4.3.1 so will have to wait for untethered jail break. I did find a directory with code I think is the hotspot. In the itunesbackup it is labeled as

    library/preferences/com.apple.mobileinternetsharing.plist. just wondering if that is the directory

    heres the current code

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
    <plist version="1.0">
    <dict>
    <key>State</key>
    <integer>1021</integer>
    <key>Version</key>
    <integer>2</integer>
    </dict>
    </plist>

    anyone know if this is what needs to be modified and what it should be changed to if it is?

    That is just one of many files that must be modified. There is no way of modifying them all without a jailbreak.

    I'm also in line waiting for some trick (without jb) o activate personal hotspot feature... I asked my country's carrier and they will not offer the service :(

    I don't want to jb my iPhone, I'm tired of bugs, freeze, no internet, restart to get internet data back, etc...

    You'll be waiting for a very long time:)
    It's not gonna happen without a jb.

    Come to the dark side friend. 4.2.1 jb is solid as the rock of Gibraltar.
