AT&T customers will be able to activate the iOS Personal Hotspot feature on the fly, according to a MacWorld report.
Customers will be able to use the MyAT&T app on their devices to tap into their account and update it with the new hotspot feature. An AT&T representative told MacWorld, "Customers can select and migrate between data plans without penalty or contract implications."
However, there is one caveat. Users who have clung to the unlimited data plan would be required to drop it and choose the DataPro 4GB/$45 data tethering plan in order to take advantage of the iOS 4.3 hotspot feature. While the hotspot tethering can be dropped, users would then have to choose the 2GB or 200MB data plans, and will not be able to revert to the unlimited data plan.
This is good news for those who don't want the hotspot functionality on a daily basis and might only need to make use of it in emergencies.
