    when is IOS 4.3 (approximately which month) to be released?

    And will it definite have the feature of Iphone acting as a MIFI hotspot so that other devices can use the Iphone as a router etc to connect via the net.

    Nothing is ever confirmed what will be in IOS 4.3 until the GM version is released and its only in Beta at the moment.
    Feb is possible but March is more likely....
    Bear in mind its not like mifi in as much you will still need a tethering plan to use it. Bluetooth is also still possible. They are caliing it "Personal Hotspot"

    I'm guessing either just before or on February 10th as thats when Verizon will start selling the iPhone and its most likely to have 4.3 on them.

    what I want to know is if Crapple will be lame and limit the personal hot spot to Iphone 4's or whether 3GS 3G 2G will get it also, I know ot os less likely that the 3G and 2G will get it though.

    hot spot feature will likely be controlled by the carrier.

    There are no betas of iOS 4.3 for the iPhone (original) or iPhone 3G so I'd suspect they won't get iOS 4.3 at all.

    4.2.5. 4.3 will unify the Verizon iOS changes (basically the WiFi hotspot) with the main tree for all devices.

    Rogers does not charge for tethering, but apple is known for leaving simple features out simply to encourage you to upgrade to the "latest and greatest"

    I should have thought of that haha.

    It's courteous to stay on topic. This would be an interesting discussion in it's own thread.

    4.3 seems like its going through an accelerated beta process, the majority of other OS updates (3.xx, 4.0, 4.1, 4.2 etc) had two weeks in between builds...if they keep up the one week builds, i'd guess 2 weeks for a GM build, which means upwards of a month for a public release. I've been in the dev program since pre 3.0

    There have been shorter gaps between two beta releases before, it's nothing unusual. And it's really no indication that the beta phase will be shorter. I'd still predict a release in early March, maybe to overlap with the release of the iPad 2, which will have 4.3 preinstalled (together with a few software surprises which will be revealed on the iPad Event in February). In April we will get the usual next generation iOS preview.

    What I'm wondering is if AT&T is going to get rid of their tethering option or just rename it to "Mobile Hotspot" for the iPhone. I can't really see them having 2 options to pay for.
