AT&T to offer Personal Hotspot Wi-Fi to iPhone users? AT&T is likely to add Personal Hotspot Wi-Fi as on option for iPhone users when iOS 4.3 hits, following in Verizon's footsteps.
Personal Hotspot gives users a chance to share their iPhone's 3G connection as a Wi-Fi access point for other devices. Apple added support for the option in iOS 4.2.6.

Verizon charges $20 per month for Wi-Fi tethering, and AT&T will likely offer a similar deal.

The move is reminiscent of when Apple added MMS support and Bluetooth tethering to iOS 3.0, but AT&T restricted the features for months.
