    hi,
    I have getting mixed reports on the personal hotspot feature in iPhone 3GS
    Can any 3GS users on iOS 4.3 beta2 tell me whether they have the wifi sharing option in their Personal hotspot menu?

    Noooooooo

    Personal hot spot seems to be missing in beta 2. I need to revert, I'm in love with that feature!

    Wait, false alarm

    Scratch that, it's still there, just moved from the main settings menu.

    Go to General | Network and it's at the bottom.

    Phew!

    Can anyone confirm if the Personal Hotspot feature is working on any of the UK phone carriers?

    AFAIK no Personal Hotspot with WiFi sharing for 3GS in beta2.

    Do I need to contact AT&T to activate the hotspot? I see it in settings, but tells me I need to contact AT&T.

    Bluetooth/USB only, as in beta 1.

    Haven't installed B2 yet but in B1 you had to pay for a tethering bolt-on from O2 to activate it. This bolt-on is not available to PAYG customers (at least the web page it redirects you to says that).

    the personal hotspot is dependant on you having internet tethering enabled on your account from what I can gather.

    I dont have tethering enabled with Orange and personal hotspot isn't showing in beta 1 so I am just going off that really

    It's not available to PAYG users. Confirmed with CS last week, as I switched from them to Three.

    I read somewhere on the net last week that it was working on Vodafone UK. Google is your friend.

    I can confirm that 3 in the UK has this feature enable and most of the new iPhone 4 contracts of £35 comes with all-you-can-eat data and tethering is included at no extra charge.
