    An app, no. Depending on your carrier, you can have that functionality enabled. I use mine that way all the time and it works like a charm.

    Is their a way to enable the function without jailbreaking the iPhone, and without carrier fees?

    Not all carriers charge an extra fee for tethering. Have you called your carrier to ask?

    Depending on the country and ISP provider. NO need to jail break anything. I live in UK and have O2 contract. Tethering is a function of my IPhone and IOS (Iphone 3GS) . Most of the time I use WIFI, and if there is no WIFI I use 3G or 4G and tether my Ipad mini to my phone (set-up a Bluetooth connection between Ipad and Phone, then set-up hotspot and enable tethering on the phone, et voila) and in this case it will eat data from my contract.

    If its available to you, you'll find it in Settings/Personal Hotspot. Turn it on, then select the name of your iPhone in Settings/Wifi on the iPad.

    Just be careful though. Just because it's there, doesn't mean you won't get charged for using it. Check with your carrier first.
