    Never noticed this working before but I'm using it now.

    So, you have another device using the data coming from your iPad?

    That's good news indeed! I wonder if it works for those on unlimited plans. Sadly, that's not me.

    Awesome! I was just coming here to ask this exact question. This is the only way I will be switching to the mobile share plans.

    Don't take it as gospel that it's going to work for everyone or keep working. I'm using my developer copy of iOS. You'd think if they were going to officially support it they would issue a press release.

    As you can see from my signal strength indicator I'm headed for Verizon but good luck to everyone else.

    Mobile Share Plan only

    It is all but confirmed that this is a feature of iOS 6 for iPads on the AT&T Mobile Share Plan. AT&T advertise that the hotspot function will be enabled on all compatible devices in a Mobile Share Plan - I guess iOS 6 is required to enable it on AT&T iPads.
    I just wish AT&T had advertised that decision back when the new iPad LTE came out, and everybody was up in arms because Verizon enabled the hotspot feature and AT&T didn't. AT&T could have easily said that the feature would be enabled later in the year.
    Just one more 'nudge' to get people onto their mobile share plan, which is way overpriced for individual users.

    I knew this was gonna happen for some reason. I'm glad it got done.


    How did you get iOS 6 though?
