    If you have Android 2.2 you should be able to tether. Under phone Settings, go to wireless and network, Mobile AP and turn it on. Under settings on IPad it should find the Android network under WiFi.
    Just connect. It works great. No need to pay for separate 3G.

    Nice work! I had to jail break my iphone 3GS to turn it into a hotspot for my wife's wi- fi only iPad. I ordered my iPad2 with 3G for the GPS and haven't tried out the 3G capability yet.

    I have a 3G iPad 2, but I have never activated the 3G as I can tether it for free to my rooted DroidX phone........

    Yes it can be done, I'm using my rooted HTC Evo to tether to my IPad2.

    But you have to root your phone first. You stated that you phone is running 2.1, that fine and it can be rooted just fine. Google droid forum or droid root and you will find all the information you need to root you phone.
