    I dont think so since it hasnt been confirmed if it will be free or not.
    If its not i am not talking hacking it.
    As of now hot spot is a free service if you have like a data card from Att. Hot spot is already included so it should be a free feature

    iv seen post on the 4.3 news post and some people say you have to have the tethering package to use it and you have to call ATT to activate it so im pretty sure its paid... and in the original post he asks if we get "personal hotspot" free like we get tethering"... tethering is you cant have unlimited data and you have to pay $15 a month to use it.. so ya

    Call and activating a feature does not mean it adds a cost.

    well to have the tethering you have to call and they take off your unlimited data plan. so if the hotspot was free why call its a waste of time

    No its not considered piracy. Its not an app from Verizon iPhones that has to be cracked. Its a feature of iOS 4.3 that a carrier may or may not support.

    Enabling it to work on an unofficial carrier is not any different than using MyWi. Now this could be against your TOS with the carrier but it isn't piracy or against the rules of this forum.

    Your only argument could be that its breaking the TOS with AT&T. But if you are against that, you should be against jailbreaking because that breaks the TOA of the iPhone with both AT&T and Apple.
