You don’t have to wait to turn your iPhone into a mobile hotspot

Earlier this month, we exclusively reported that Apple’s new Personal Hotspot feature is coming to all iPhones with iOS 4.3. The feature, which was popularized by Android phones like the HTC EVO 4G, will allow devices to share an iPhone’s 3G data connection via Wi-Fi. Unfortunately, more cautious carriers like AT&T are likely to take their sweet time enabling the service for subscribers. Jailbreakers can purchase one of several apps that enable Wi-Fi tethering, but not everyone wants to bother with the cat and mouse game that inevitably arrives with each subsequent iOS update. But patience is a virtue not everyone possesses, and some of you might not feel like sitting around while AT&T puts the new mobile hotspot feature through its paces. Well, you’re in luck. More →
