    I found a post about using a Droid, but anyone know if any other phones can be tethered? What about the Blackberry?

    I found the download for the Droid, but I cannot figure out how to go from there. Can someone help me. It is called EasyTether by mobihand.inc. I may give up on the 3G.

    I have a nexus one that I bought for reviews, etc. which I wouldn't mind throwing my att card into to get wireless should i really need it, is there a way to clone a SIM card and is it legal (against att TOS)?

    Does anyone know?

    what does 'tethering' mean exactly?

    Is there a model of phone that was successfully tethered to an ipad?

    If someone sends you a SMS text on your phone, can you answer it from the iPad and send it via your phone?

    Thanks

    Looks like only WinMo and Symbian devices.

    I wrote a blog on modifying the Droid and everything...the links are to the droidforums.net where I was banned for defending the iPad.

    Droid-Does.Blogspot.Com

    A lot of things have changed since I stopped that blog, so the links probably don't all work anymore.

    That being said, it's not hard but if you don't know what you're doing it's too much of a pain to guide someone through it. I made the mistake of doing that with one person who was not very tech inclined and it took me an entire day to do with him what I did in 5 minutes.

    I had tried to connect my blackberry bold to the iPad via Bluetooth, and it is only recognized as an audio device.. So I'm guessing it cannot be tethered.

    You can tether the ipad to a blackberry via PDAnet (bluetooth) but it requires you jailbreak you iPad.

    I was trying to ask Junefabrics (the makers of PDANet) if they would be releasing another version which would allow wifi tethering (a lot of the newer BB have wifi).

    I currently use my rooted G1 to tether and it's fast and reliable.

    Maybe I should get a BB app developed for such a purpose :)

    Also I should add that depending on the model of your Blackberry, cradlepoint makes a device to create a wifi hotspot.

    It also depends on your carrier... for example, I can't do this on my Rogers BB. No phones are supported for Rogers with the Cradlepoint devices. Bummer!

    Cheers,
