This is a plug-in for Locale ($10) or Tasker (5 CHF), which allows you to turn on/off the Wifi Hotspot functionality of your phone.
IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT LOCALE/TASKER ARE, YOU DON'T NEED THIS APP!
Turn the wifi hotspot functionality on and off manually or use the "Hotspot Toggle" instead. Please do not rate this app with 1 star if you failed to read or understand the previous paragraph, because that is not the problem of this software.
For Android 2.2 and above. It uses an unsupported (but publicly available) API, so it might not work on your phone.
If you use the plugin, please rate it!
Note: This plug-in does not make your phone hotspot-capable if it was not before. It is also not intended to avoid any costs charged on you by the provider for using the Wifi Hotspot (Mobile AP).
Tested on the following phones:

Reported by users:

Please share your experience directly with me (by email) and I add your phone to the list.
