    Do I have to jailbreak both my iPhone and iPad to get free wifi hotspur from my phone to my iPad? I would jailbreak my phone but I have seen terrible effects of jailbreaking the ipad2

    The iPhone4 directly supports WiFi hotspots. There is no need to jailbreak. You can enable the hotspot in the 'Settings' menu.

    Yes but you have to pay for tethering from your service provider.

    Discussion of how to enable tethering on your phone without paying for it is at best a very grey area and should not be discussed on our forums. OK?

    I'm definitely not losing any sleep over it if it is or not.

    Legal or Not, I look at it this way,if you are paying for a data plan from a carrier and you tether your iPad to your Iphone you can only use one at a time,its not free data or Wi-Fi ,its just a convenience. Or do I have it wrong.:confused:

    That's how I see it and also last time I checked the forum it's not illegal to talk about it.
