Any iPad can connect to any Wifi access point, so any phone that can create a personal hot spot using it's network connection will work.
The iPad doesn't have a preference.
<<What hotspot does is takes the incoming 3g signal to your phone and turns it into outgoing wifi signal from your phone to your Ipad or other wifi>>
Let me re-explain my delima with an example
I'm on a trip and I stop at a McDonnalds that has att wifi..
My phone can connect to it fine because it has att service. The Tablet is wifi only and doesn't have a "att service". I'd like to connect the phone to the McD's/ATT wifi and then tether the internet from the phone to the tablet...
Is this even possible?
Wifi is NOT tied to a phone company carrier.
Wifi at McDonalds is paid for by McDonalds and is free to you. Just connect and use it n
3G and Edge networks are phone company subscription networks. Wifi are not.
There are some paid Wifi hotspots and you can use something like Boingo to pay for a connection when a free public Wifi s not available.
Your Ipad can connect to any wifi, regardless of who is providing it. At some places, such as Mcdonalds, you have to accept their terms of service first. How you do that is connect to their wifi with your Ipad, (chime back in if you need help with that), open your browser in your Ipad, which will take you to their acceptance page, accept the terms , you're done and can enjoy their free wifi.
