Personal Hotspot with Rogers

Does Personal Hotspot have to be enabled through Rogers or should it just work?

I upgraded my iPhone 4 to iOS 4.3 last night very excited for this feature. This morning I tried using it, and it doesn't seem to work. In my iPhone I set the password (10 characters so larger than the 8 character min) and turned the Hotspot on. I see the network from my iPad, but when I try to join I just get the message "failed to join network" (I have double, triple and quadruple checked the password). On the phone side it shows 1 connection on the Hotspot even though the iPad didn't join. Wondering if it might be an iPad issue, I tried from a MacBook pro. It appears to join the network, but doesn't get an IP adress assigned so it can't reach the Internet.

Has anyone else set this up on their iPhone 4 through Rogers yet? Did it work for you?

Do you have a data plan of 1GB+ on your iPhone? Are you able to tether it via USB or Bluetooth?

did you also update your iPad to 4.3?

Worked fine for me last night, but I was surprized to see that the iPad knows that you are connected to an iPhone and not just a standard Wi-Fi network.

How many can use your hotspot? Do you know if it is five or three?

I have the 6GB plan, but I have not tried to tether it via Bluetooth or USB yet. The MacBook Pro I tried with wasn't mine so I just tested the Wifi connection quickly.

No my iPad is still at 4.2.1 until I can jailbreak 4.3 I still have one app that doesn't run full screen and I need FullForce to make it do so until they update the app. The fact that it didn't work with the MacBook Pro either tells me this shouldn't be the problem though.

None so far

You can use 3 wifi but I believe (haven't tried) 1 more via Bluetooth and 1 USB (5 total)

You need iOS 4.3 on the iPad.

So I tried the USB over lunch and it did work, but the WiFi still does not.

Interesting, I don't want to upgrade but I might have to if nothing else works. This doesn't explain why the MacBook Pro can't join though.

Works fine on our MacBook and MacBook Pro.

Both are running OS X 10.6.6 and iTunes 10.2.1.

Don't know if there is anything in either of those updates that make it happen.

Edit: Will test it on a G5 iMac running Leopard and an older version of iTunes and let you know.

The G5 iMac has iTunes 10.2, and it worked.
