I am currently running 4.3.3 and I do not have the option to steam music, vids, or pics via AirPlay. I am confused and was curious what is exactly needed to make this AirPlay a reality for me? I realize I'd need the Apple tv, but is there anything else I might need? Or should I save and $100 and just purchase the hdmi cable for my phone? Thanks.

Is the Apple TV 2 connected to the same WiFi network as the iPhone? AirPlay doesn't work in all third party apps. Test it in the iPod app. You should see the AirPlay symbol in the lower right corner. Click it and it will ask you if you want to play the media on the phone or the Apple TV 2.

The Apple TV 2, WiFi and an iPhone running 4.3.1 or higher is all you need. I recommend it over the HDMI cable because it's wireless, only costs $100 and it has addional features, such as Netflix.
