    Hello,
    I am anxiously awaiting my Ipad for xmas. I was wondering if I would be able to tether or something from my droid x so I can get access where ever I am. I really dont want to jailbreak the ipad so is there a way to do this without jailbraking? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Yes, you can either pay for the tethering or you can root it and use wireless tether. I doubt I am allowed to go into specifics but you are free to search google or a droid x specific forum.

    I have a rooted DroidX with Wireless Tether installed. For some reason, even tho it shows up on my iPad as being on, I can't get it to work. It says it can't open the websites because the iPad is not connected to the internet. What do I need to do in order to use it?

    If and when I get Wireless Tether to work, will it use up the minutes in my phone plan?

    I realize we are limited in what we can say, but if any of you have knowledge of wireless tethering....please send a private message. Thanks

    Actually, no it doesn't. If you use wireless tether for root, it uses the unlimited data plan that is on your phone as if you are using the web browser on your phone.

    If you use the paid-for 3G hotspot app, then it uses a separate 2gb limit.

    If you use a hard-wired USb tether, then it uses an unwritten 5gb limit.

    None of these uses any plan voice minutes. If you need more proof, call up verizon and ask them if using data on your phone's web browser takes up phone minutes, they will tell you no. The wireless tether for root app is the same as using your phone's browser.
