    For those that have an iPhone and a wifi edition only iPad try this:

    1. On your phone go to SETTINGS > GENERAL > NETWORK > PERSONAL HOTSPOT
    2. Enter anything for your password (which will be used by your iPad to connect to your phones 3G network)
    3. Toggle the Personal Hotspot ON
    4. Now simply scan for any new wifi networks using your iPad and your phone will be listed

    How happy am I that I didn't bother paying an extra 100 plus for the iPad with network connectivity not to mention the monthly cost of another data package I'm also saving

    Thank got my iPhone is still on unlimited data usage hehe
    That doesn't work for me (USA Verizon). It just keeps trying to connect, spinning, no luck. Boo hoo. Would have saved $ when I can't connect to wifi.

    That's a pay per month feature for Verizon customers. Costs about $20/month.

    My folks can do that free with their phones since they have a grandfathered plan since we were originally alltel customers but I can't since mine hasn't been a smartphone line til last year.

    How to listen to YouTube when it's not the current open app !



    If you like to linen to music videos on YouTube but want to do something else on your iPad at the same time all you need to do is ope up the YouTube video you want in safari press play and then open another tab ( if you want to surf the web at the same time to listening t the music ) or open an app ...you will notice the YouTube video stops playing.....when you are in the other app or web page simply double press the home button swipe to the right, you should have the media functions available now ....press play and it will resume the video you have in the un shown tab ...very handy feature for me . Hopefully it helps others too

    Enjoy

    Just found this one. If you are into streaming radio, you can open the stream in a tab on Safari, and then navigate away from it. It will continue to play in the background.

    Here's one I'm listening to right now. Hit the iTunes button to start the stream.

    iOS defaults to a four-number passcode, but you can turn it off by going to Settings, General, Passcode Lock, Simple Passcode. Now you can use any full keyboard password to lock the iPad. The password also helps to encrypt your mail and attachments on the iPad, so you probably want to make it safer than a four-digit number

    Thanks

    Big thread but this tip is my favorite and I don' want anyone to miss it.
    Go to Settings/General/Short Cuts/ Put in your email address as the phrase and the first three letters of you email as the shortcut.

    This will pay off big when typing emails or logins. Of corse you can build this up to all you common phrases.

    Cheers

    There is not Shortcuts option on my iPad 2. Shouldnt the Auto Fill>My Info option do the same?

    The new Shortcuts as mentioned by zipur came with iOS 5. And, yes, they are a VERY handy thing to have. To repeat where they are (if you are on iOS5): Go to your Settings app - General - Keyboard - Add New Shortcut... There, you'll have two lines, one to input your shortcut keystrokes and one to input the phrase that'll appear when you type the shortcut.

    The AutoFill is useful, yes, to put in an e-mail address, but with Shortcuts, you can create anything. For instance, I use a shortcut to type my name and the end of every post, enter in any one of my three e-mail address and to type in long phrases I use a lot. Very powerful little tool.

    Hope this clarifies.

    To save a file from Safari to GoodReader:

    open the file of interest in Safari
    tap Safari's address bar (the keyboard will appear)
    go to the very beginning of the file's URL address, where the http:// or https:// part is
    add a single letter g in front of the address, so you'll get ghttp:// or ghttps:// instead of http:// or https://
    press Go on the keyboard (this will close Safari and start GoodReader)
    the file will start to download into GoodReader automatically (check Web Downloads section to find it)
    I always find difficulty getting to a particular place in a line of text, particularly the beginning of a word.

    Has anyone got a tip for making this easy ?
