An upcoming release of iOS 4.3 will reportedly bring the Personal Hotspot feature to GSM iPhones.

The new mobile hotspot feature that ships with the Verizon iPhone lets your phone create a wireless network and share its Internet connection with up to five devices.

Currently the Verizon iPhone is running iOS 4.2.5; however, both iPhoneHellas and iPhoneclub.nl report that the feature will come to existing iPhones via an iOS 4.3 update.

The iPhone 4 CDMA, such as information from the American media, comes with iOS 4.2.5 but according to reliable information, the feature will be added to "our" iPhone 4 in the upcoming iOS 4.3. [iPhoneHellas]

CDMA is Verizon and GSM is AT&T. The Verizon iPhone is definitely coming out with Wi-Fi hotspot tethering for up to 5 devices, people are guessing that the 4.3 firmware will also enable it on all the other iPhones (which are GSM based on AT&T's network).

"I guess this means the current untethered jailbreaks for iOS 4.2.1 will be postponed yet again in wait for iOS 4.3"; I wouldn't be surprised if this were the case.

I hope this isn't the case, I'm still on firmware 4.0.1 and I've been waiting for the 4.2.1 jailbreak for quite some time. I'm getting tired of these bluetooth problems and the proximity sensor issues as well.

MyWi 4.0 already does this. NO extra tethering charges. $20 one time charge.
