    As far as I'm aware, on non-jail broken devices, this can only be done on the new iPhone4, which supports WiFi tethering. Other iPhones do not support tethering.

    You can tether with the iphone 3Gs via bluetooth tethering and iphone4 wifi or bluetooth. No need to JB as long as both iphone and ipad are using same ios and you have signed up for tethering through cell phone company..

    connecting WiFi Ipad2 to internet via Iphone3GS

    Success!!:D

    Iphone3gs with 4.2.1 - enabled tethering under 'network' and enabled bluetooth
    Ipad2 16G WiFi 4.3.3 - enabled bluetooth

    paired Iphone and Ipad2

    Powered up Safari on Ipad2 and connected to internet

    Already had a 'data' plan enabled on the Iphone

    No jailbreaking needed of either device

    Gosh! I didn't know that you could tether using a 3GS. Yes, how much is tethering?

    I'm assuming a month? I'm going to have to ask Tesco O2 if they do tethering. They didn't do it back along but I'm sure I heard that they would be implementing it soon!

    Nope, that was correct at that time but I'm sure I've seen a more recent update, I must check when my iPhone 4 eventually gets here.

    That is the plan, people say 2gb because you are already paying for 2, that plan gives you another 2gb to use.

    Thanks David yea I see now I already pay 25 for 2gb for non tethering and for 25 more I get 2 gb more and the "right" to tether. Probably belongs in another thread but any thoughts on whether a VPN between ipone 4 and iPad masks tethering or are we even supposed to discuss such things? Lol
