Tether Your iPad with Your iPhone

by on March 1st, 2010

With the iPad pre-orders set to start any day now, most of you will need to decide whether to get the WiFi version or the WiFi+3G version. Now if you already have an iPhone (especially with Rogers 6GB data plan), you may wish to save a bit of cash and opt for the WiFi-only iPad, and wirelessly tether off your iPhone.

Jailbroken iPhones can install applications like MyWi ($9.99) which basically allows your iPhone to host a Wi-Fi hotspot, allowing laptops and, yes, even your iPad to connect and “share” the iPhone’s data connection over Wi-Fi. The iPhone will appear just as a normal Wi-Fi hotspot would on your iPad and connection can be made while the phone is still in your pocket.

As many of you carry your cell phones wherever you go, there may not be a need to purchase another 3G device and pay additional monthly rates.
