Using this feature on android very often. Shame Nokia still lacks this feature.

well, my galaxy 5 had it, and i used unregularly, my 710 (brazil) does not have it yet and i miss it, mostly cos my wife bought a New Ipad (wifi) so... It would made a big difference.

What is really annoying about this, is there are lumias now which can tether, but are in the hands of nokia reps :(

Been waiting for this update for a while now, it cannot come soon enough.

correct ..who cares !?
wireless sharing ? mobile or phone or who what ever it is, is very very slow advancing comparing to apple OS and android. at less blutooth sharing on OS apple can send files to apple products..while this windows phone can paired only with headset!! for god sake Microsoft! windows mobile 2003 was supporting files transfer lol

WP is catching up Android which has been having this functionality since Froyo.
It is better late than never, but it might be too late....

Enabling wifi hotspot with maNgo refresh is certainly a welcome step! I miss this feature on my lumia 800 very much.

I have galaxy note which supports wifi tethering, however since I use my lumia for my telephony needs I always have to swap sim from lumia to note for wifi hotspot. That sucks! Really look forward to mango refresh update... MS/Lumia rocks when it comes to user experience and performance. Nothing as fluid as fast as WP !!!

Writing this from Lumia 800 itself
