    Does anyone know if there is a way to use your cellphone to connect your ipad to the Internet? Seems to me I saw a post early on before the 3G models came out...

    Depends what phone you have. If you have a phone that is rootable or supports tethering natively, then yes.

    My Motorola Droid is rooted (the equivalent of jailbreaking), and I have a WiFi tether app that uses the incoming 3G data connection to turn the phone into a WiFi hotspot that I can connect through (tether) with my iPad.

    There are plenty of phones that can do this, which do you have?

    To name a couple:

    - iPhone
    - Moto Droid
    - Palm Pre

    And a ton more. Almost every Android phone can do it if it's rooted. Still waiting on the HTC Droid Incredible to be rooted so I can pick that phone up.

    Nexus One with Froyo has hotspot feature already and no root needed.

    Yep, depends on the phone.
    Does the phone have built in wifi? Thats whats needed.
    Some phones(iphone) can do this but must first be hacked.
