First post! - be gentle :-)
I have an IPhone........3gs - got it 2 years ago and my contract expires this month. Though I use the data feature, I've less than 100 minutes used for cell calls in 2 years. (I know I know............ :-)
anyway, I was thinking about what to do - I wanted an IPad (though I have a Toshiba Thrive 32gig that I love but it's wifi only) - and get 3G and get a $25.00 contract (2 gig data - month by month - just in case it doesn't work out as I want it to - At&T but Verizon offers the same deal???) . Then I won't need my Iphone and can get a prepaid for $100.00 a year which will still go over my limit of less than 100 minutes in 2 years! LOL ............
Now I'm in a pickle and can't figure out what to do. And I'm impulsive as you might guess from my purchases.
I love the thrive with the full usb and hdmi and full size sd card - I'm a photobug and carry cameras with me all the time and it's handy to go thru the photos on a larger screen. Need a pc with Itunes with the IPad to transfer back and forth (truthfully that annoys me but there ARE things I wanted an IPad for.
Back to my prickly situation: The IPad 2 can't be a hotspot so I've read. But the IPhone can? But I want to shut it off and save that bill each month and just pay the $25.00 data plan.
Now, is there any way I can still use the Iphone? Any way I can connect any of this mess to the Thrive when I'm away from a wifi connection?
I don't know why I do these things and then expect other's to help me put the pieces together LOL - but from what I've heard there are quite a few experts here!
As far as 'jailbreaking' and 'rooting' or anything, I'm pretty much a coward when it comes to that - the closest I get is still pay with debug on my computers :-)
thanks to anyone who even attempts to answer this - even if I'm told I bought all the wrong equipment and to return everything LOL
