Bell/Virgin Confirm iOS 4.3 Personal Hotspot for iPhone Users

Canadians are now complete. All of our iPhone carriers have confirmed they will support the Personal Hotspot feature coming next week in iOS 4.3. First it was Rogers/Fido, then Telus, and now Bell/Virgin. It’s true–our telecom giants do like to make moves in unison.

Our friends at MobileSyrup received confirmation from Bell:

“Yes, we will.. All our in-market plans support this use and we advise existing customers to check and see if their plan covers the use too.”

…and Virgin:

“Regarding the iPhone upgrade, when Apple makes this available, Members can go in to iTunes to get the upgrade and yes, they will be able to use the Mobile Hotspot. No restriction on plan or anything. However, Members will of course still be charged for any data use outside of their plan so they should make sure they have the right plan for the amount of data they’ll need”

So there you have it, bring on Personal Hotspot in iOS 4.3! It’s coming next Friday on March 11th.
