So in my other thread it was definitely said AT&T had no hotspot capabilities what so ever (now/at first)

I went to the apple store to trade in my AT&T iPad 3 and the apple store dork said AT&T does have hotspot data plan + $30 for tethering available now.

So, well what is it? Don't post if you don't know I'm tired of the heresay and speculation.

The apple rep got confused.

AT&T does not currently support hotspot from new iPad. They are still evaluating it. That is official stance.

What the rep was getting confused about was the hotspot tethering plan from the iPhone/android AT&T phones. In that's case you must be on a tiered data plan like a $30/3Gb data plan. Pay $20 extra. So you plan becomes officially a 5GB data pro plan where u are tether or use your iPhone data up to 5gb inclusive of all data

So if u use 4 GB a month from iPhone that leaves you will 1GB to tether using other devices like laptop or wifi only iPad.

Why are you on an iPad while driving?! You're going to kill someone!

1) OP - your thread title and tone does not invite polite response
2) You could search yourself
3) Why do you care about AT&T if you have a Verizon model?

If you really want to know the answer, you should contact AT&T directly. Either on the phone or checkout their website, or you can check out the data plan from within settings on the iPad to see what plans are available.
