Yes I see this too. Using the hotspot via WiFi does not have this problem but is a poor workaround. I also upgraded both devices to iOS 6, and tried resetting network settings on the hotspot device, to no avail. I filed a bug report at http://bugreporter.apple.com , you may wish to do the same.

I'm experiencing the same exact problem when trying to send an iMessage from my newly updated iPad 3 while tethered to my iPhone 3GS (without current update). Every other Internet function works perfectly while tethered. It's only iMessage that doesn't work.

I'm also having this problem. iPad 2 connected to iPhone 3GS, both updated to iOS 6. Used to work no problem, now the only time I can send/receive messages on my iPad is when I'm at home, connected to my own wi-fi. A commercial hotspot hasn't done the job for me so far.

And the bug report link above leads me to a developer area, you have to register as an apple developer to access it...

try this one, i logged it here without any problems the other day

True. The feedback link just posted works without a dev account. You should be able to register as a developer for free though and use bugreporter. At least that used to be true, I'm paid now so can't be 100% certain they haven't changed their policy.

I find some push notifications also fail, like for Mail from a Mountain Lion email server. But most everything does work.

Still no real resolution. I have to say I'm relatively disappointed. This may weigh in on my decision of whether to get the iPhone 5 or go with Samsung.

yep still no resolution to this issue, I hope this get's fixed in the next software release by apple
Also to note and somewhat similar, I've recently got an iphone 5 and have connected this to my macbook air using bluetooth PAN, and for some strange reason it drops the connection after a few minutes, I've set up another post for this issue and as yet no one has posted a solution to this one, so i think its somehow connected to the same underlying issue as this post.
All in all very frustrating........

Months later and I am getting the same problem described above. Fix your junk, Apple!

Can anyone else confirm this is still not fixed for them in 6.1? My bugreporter bug was closed as a duplicate, and the other bug lists as closed as well. It isn't fixed for me though, I upgraded to 6.1 yesterday.

I upgraded to iOS 6.1 yesterday, and this is still not fixed for me either.

Cannot believe that apple broke this with ios6 and despite 2 updates since have not managed to fix it.
