    Ipad tethering

    Can anyone tell me how to tether my iPad 1 to my iPhone 3GS. They have both got 4.3.1 and I can't find out how to tether without jail breaking. Some threads have intimated that this is possible with 4.3 update. I have also got the latest iTunes 10. Please help with clear instructions.

    If the feature is not already in your settings menu then the feature has to be turned on with AT&T. This is going to cost you an extra $20 with the minimum data+tethering charge being $45 monthly.

    But when phone is jailbroken there are a couple apps that do this but is only a 1 time fee for the app with NO extra monthly charges. Are you on the old unlimited plan or the new 2gb/month plan?

    If both have new ios and you have already activated a tethering plan through att, then just turn BT on, on both devices and they should see each other..

    Not everyone has to agree with your point of views, but at some point they need to accept Them!

    Thank you for your help guys but I found this on the Internet and it kind of answered my question.

    Thank you for e-mailing your query to mailto:support@tescomobile.com

    I am sorry to inform that internet tethering with Tesco Mobile is not supported.

    Recently The new Personal Hotspot feature has replaced internet tethering on the iPhone 4. It enables you to use up to 5 devices to connect to your iPhone, three of which has to be done via Wi-Fi and the other two can be done via USB or Bluetooth. Unfortunately Tesco Mobile does not support Personal Hotspot as we cannot support internet tethering.

    Thank you both for your help.
