"Say it ain't so! According to this here slide, which details a bit of insidery AT&T information about the impending release of iOS 4.3, Ma Bell's iPhone 4 will have its Personal Hotspot restricted to use with just three devices."
I don't know that it is that big of a deal, I normally would only have one or two devices sharing my hotspot anyway. And it turns out based on documentation with iOS 4.3 it's actually the software that limits you to 3 devices and not AT&T. If you want to have 5 devices, you have to use Bluetooth or USB to add the other two. This was found on the Apple site about iOS 4.3: "You can share your connection with up to five devices at once over Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and USB - with up to three of those connections using Wi-Fi."
