    If you can create a hotspot on your iPhone4 (what version of iOS do you have - it needs at least version 4.3) then this should work just fine if your iPhone service provider allows tethering. They may charge extra for this service, though.

    I know that in the US and UK, you do need to contact your provider and have 'tethering' enabled on your account before you can use it on the iPhone4. Unfortunately, they charge you more.....:(

    On the ipad one there was a kit add one thing that added 3G CDMA service to WiFi Ipads. This was when Verzion got in to the game. But the Ipad2 now have built in 3G CDMA service for verzion and I have not heard about the kit again.

    The kit was just a Verizon MiFi 3G hotspot bundled with the iPad. You can still get the MiFi, but I don't know if you can get it with the (usually) cheaper iPad data plans. Any of the various portable hotspot devices will work with an iPad.
