    thanks jsh1120, you answered my question perfectly.

    i just want to tether when i don't have a wifi connection during my commutes. most of the time I will have wifi, and i just want to be able to surf the net for an hour at a time when I don't have a wifi connection. so I doubt my data will spike to the point of being recognized. i should be able to fly under the radar. I just don't know how I feel about buying a brand new iPhone or Galaxy Nexus and then rooting/jail breaking it and possibly screwing it up haha!

    On the same note, if you aren't doing stuff you shouldn't be able to do, vzw can't determine if you are tethering or not. The only thing they can catch you on is amount of data used. And vzw, for what I understand does cap you at 2GB of data. Not sure about your grandfathered plan though.

    when i look at "my usage" on my account statement it is listed as "1.5gigs / unlimited"

    Just landed an iPad 2 and looking for help. I read above but there were no details on the tethering process.
    I have a Samsung Charge android phone that I would like to tether. What do I need to do to set this up ?

    To tether means to use the phone with a cord directly hooked up to your iPad. The phone serves as an antenna for data connection. Many smartphones allow you to broadcast a wifi signal from your phone. This is called a wifi hotspot. You then connect to that wifi signal just like you would at home, or the coffee shop. You can do a google search on creating a wifi hotspot with your particular phone for more details.

    This is not what tethering means in this context. There is no cord involved. You're just sharing an Internet connection, wirelessly. That's the "wi" in "wifi."

    Read my entire post. I was educating the poster. To many people get them confused. We are in agreement here.

    Yup, did read your entire post.

    No cord needed to tether. Suggest we make that clear to avoid confusing newbies.

    Hello I'm a new user of iPad and just want to share some info about tethering.
    I have a iPad with wifi. I have a droid by Motorola and to tether it I just Bluetooth the two together and I'm using the droid to surf the net. Hope this helps.

    Most, if not all UK providers don't charge for tethering now. As there is a personal hotspot feature in all iPhones running IOS5, then as long as you have a decent size data package it's not a problem.
