    Hi Everyone,

    I am going to buy an I-PAD. I can't really afford the one I want (64GB, 3G) but I can afford the clams for the 64GB Wi-Fi. Most of the time I would be near a hot spot but for the times I am not, can I use my Verizon Moto Droid as a tether (with the right app installed) and/or a Verizon Mi-Fi to provide the broadband wireless capability?

    TIA

    OK, so I searched and found the answers about tethering, since I am at 2.2 on my phone I think that's out. So there's just the question about the Verizon Mi-Fi.

    Yes, as Jake said, you can root your Droid and install the wifi app.. you can definitley use the myfi hotspot as access to internet. Infact I was in Bestbuy the other day and their internet was out for some reason so they had a bunch of myfi set for all the various devices including the iPads.
