    Did AT&T ever activate the hotspot feature of the iPad 3 for people with unlimited data?

    No and they never will. Unlimited data was clearly only for the device itself and not for tethering. AT&T has always considered tethering as a separate plan requirement.

    Nope not with an unlimited data plan
    They'll only activate hotspot if you pay for the $50 5 GB plan or link the iPad with mobile share

    You could put the iPad SIM into an AT&T Elevate 4G Hotspot and use FaceTime.

    Only the Elevate? Has AT&T forced a change to the unlimited iPad data plan?

    I guess any hotspot will do. Connecting to the hotspot makes the iPad on wifi. I don't know about changes to the plan.
