The Personal Hotspot feature that comes with the CDMA version of iPhone 4 may be rolled out as an update (known as iOS 4.3) to all existing GSM-based handsets in the future.
The source of the information has proved to be correct on a couple of occasions in the past when rumours of Apple updates have abounded. The feature can be found in the phone’s settings, where wifi can be turned on or off, and passwords changed. They also say that the feature will only be enabled if the carrier so desires it.
