    Hey everyone,

    I am new to this fourm as well new the the ipad world. So here is my problem:

    I have an iphone 4s and an Ipad 2. My iphone 4s has service provided by att and my ipad is wifi and had the capability to connect with 3g but normally just use it at home via wifi. Anyway I am trying to tether it to work with my phone.

    So this morning I jail broke my ipad 2 in which I got cydia as well mywi however have no idea how to get my ipad to connect to the phones service? Again I am very new to everything but didnt know if I had to jail break my phone in order for this to work or if I could just do my ipad? Please is someone could lead me in the right direction that would be great!

    Thanks for your time!

    You install MyWi on your iPhone4S, start up the app and activate WiFi hotspot tethering, then connect your iPad to the wifi hotspot which MyWi creates. Then your iPad will utilise your iPhone4S 3G data connection.

    Hope that helps.

    So then I jail broke the wrong thing? I need to jailbreak my phone and not the ipad in order to use my ipad off my phones service. I cannot do it the other way around?

    MyWi enables the generation of a new Wifi hotspot on the device on which it is installed. Since you want to share your iPhones At&T signal so that your iPad can use it to access the internet, you will have to jailbreak your iPhone and install MyWi as indicated above to generate a new Wifi signal from your IPhone. It is this new wifi to which your Ipad can then hook up to.

    Yup, as W0lfgang says, if you don't have native tethering on your iPhone, but want to tether other devices to it to use the 3G data allowance you already pay for, you need to jailbreak the iPhone and install MyWi. You can then connect your iPad to the hotspot it creates. There is no need to modify the iPad in any way in this scenario.

    You can jail break the iPad2 on iOS 5.1.1 using the steps outlined here: http://www.ipadforums.net/showthread.php?t=77390

    Nrth - you can use the same method to jail break your phone. It's a universal jail break. Then, you can use it for tethering. Doesn't mean you can't enjoy the iPad jail break, however. That'll be fun, also... :)

I tried to uncheck the encrypt box in which I have to type in a password which I have no password for it. I have tried 0000 and 1234 but nothing any ideas? I do not want to lose my stuff on my phone. I have already backed the phone up but little afraid right now
