    Just so your awares my 3 gen 3G 64gb. Does not support personal hotspot I work for my carrier and my sim is wide open and according to our internal team, there is nothing to configur. :eek:

    Again apple only loves the USA. Even though more subscribers in the EU

    No LTE. USA only and now NO Personal HOTSPOT :(

    Even though hotspot is not free on AT&T, am I suppose to see personal hotspot in the settings?

    I don't see anything in the settings or general>network.

    All we have is the LOcal version of the specs on the web page ... no one from apple has a clue :eek: even there they have just translated in to German the stuff on US web page..

    in the mean time I have also used my German TMobile SIM .. (Which shows the Personal Hot Spot on the iPhone 4) still no luck..

    Guess its LTE & Verizon only function :eek:.....

    well that against the LAW here, as they are clearly advertising it on their web page .... :mad:

    was actually the only reason I wanted the upgrade .. well seems to me its going back ,,, Guess I get to be one of the first to send it back :rolleyes:...

    Ill just go back to my iPad 2 :)
