    I have just purchased a IPad 4 Retina.

    My IPad does not have a Sim slot and I need to connect it to Internet from my IPhone 4.

    Can someone help me with the solution as without Internet connection my IPad will be not much of use.

    An iPad without cellular runs on WiFi. If you don't have WiFi at home, I'm sure there are public connections (libraries, local eateries, etc.)? Do you have Internet access at home? If yes, you can buy a wireless router and set it up so your iPad can access the Internet.

    To connect the iPad to your phone - have you contacted your provider to set up a plan where you can make the phone a hotspot? Or, if you have a plan and making a connection is just not working for you, can you tell us what is or is not happening? If you tell us how you are trying to connect the two devices, we might be able to help.

    Hello, I live on top of a hill with great reception. I want to dump my land line DSL Internet system and use my 3G Apple iPhone to connect with a laptop or iPad.
    This would save me a lot of $$$ each month and I hate the land line. Just incoming robo call trash and a big bill each month!

    I am not versed in this stuff but heard about "tethering?" I can get on line easily with my iPhone but obviously need a bigger screen to do eBay etc.
    Do I tether and if so, do I need to tell my ATT cell service for some reason??? Do I need a "dongle"? Any help appreciated, Morgan in San Diego

    Hi, welcome to iPF!

    To use your iPhone as personal hotspot for your iPad (tethering), you have to think of this:

    You won't need a dongle. Just make sure this feature is supported by your carrier/data plan, and you meet all the other requirements as well.
