    Just upgraded to iOS 6 to find out that the Personal Hotspot feature will require a new data plan w/AT&T. Currently I have the pre-paid $30/3GB a month. Guess they are saving any/all features they can for their data share customers...

    Yep, its not enough that AT&T got rid of its unlimited plans for the iPad. Now, they want to make it as hard as possible to even use your entire data allotment on the capped plans.

    That's why when I have occasion to buy an iPad data plan for a particular month and find that in the last few days I haven't used up all my data -- I just run Netflix until it maxes out.

    When the JB for iOS 6 is released for iPad 3, can't you just install TetherMe?

    Yeah, I could do that. I just don't think I should have to.

    Are you referring to an AT&T iPad? If so, that's awesome!

    I agree. Wouldn't my phone also require a jailbreak anyways? Other than a few small features, I see no reason for jailbreaking.

    To the OP:

    If you already have tethering on your plan, I don't think that a jailbreak is necessary. I had to reset my network settings on my phone, but once I did, it started working just fine. No shared data for me.

    Hope that helps!
