If you will be installing iOS 4.3 on your AT&T iPhone 4 next week you are probably wondering what changes to expect, well one exciting new feature allows your iPhone 4 to act as a personal WiFi Hotspot.

AT&T customers will be glad to hear that this functionality is being added as Verizon iPhone 4 owners have had access to this feature since it was released in February, to utilize this feature customers will have to subscribe to the DataPro 4GB/$45 tethering data plan.

According to AppleInsider the final iOS 4.3 build has been released to developers, therefore there is no reason why it won’t go public on March 11th, Verizon Wireless customers will have to wait as the Verizon iPhone 4 differs from the standard iPhone 4.

AT&T’s hotspot plan allows for the double amount of data that Verizon’s hotspot plan does, however AT&T’s 4GB plan costs $45 per month, whereas Verizon’s plan gives you 2GB of data for $20 per month.

The small print makes things a bit more equal as AT&T charge just $10 per 1GB when you go over your data allowance, whereas Verizon charge you $20 per 1GB of overage.

Will you be using the AT&T iPhone 4′s hotspot functionality?
