Hi David,

Could you look at supporting this common handset/hotspot APN case with IPv6 & IPv4 APN protocol on two separate bearers with the latter only brought up when hotspot is on. 

Like Nick indicates there are unpalatable business implications that effectively block iOS deployment with IPv6-only. Until the business starts asking for IPv6 we need ways of making the transition that are minimally disruptive.
