    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?

    I found a post to tether the crack berry storm, it didn't work for me. The search continues.

    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

    Walkinghotspot.com may have a solution for your phone.

    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.
