    I have a iPad 1 wifi only 4.3.1 and can't get it to tether yet to my froyo droid. But I can tether droid to my iMac no problem. After i jb it should work fine,

    So donka you're saying iPad 2 wifi only will tether right out of the box no jb needed?

    It will be able to tether to any wifi hotspot provided you have the password. This must be a wifi personal hotspot though and not another form of connection. After that, the manufacturer is pretty much irrelevant. The iPad just sees it as a regular Wifi connection.

    I have a droid running 2.2. When those of you who can tether, are you paying for that feature or is there an app you use? My droid is not rooted.

    Works fine on my Droid Incredible,froyo,non rooted
    Verizon allows prorate on the hotspot feature,I don't want to root so if I need wifi from my phone I can get iron an as needed basis. I've got a 3G ATT ipad1 but if I need data I'll use my Verizon phone since I can prorate. At my house ATT is much stronger so I can use it if needed but where we vacation, in Luray, ATT is spotty but Verizon is vert strong. Around my most travelled areas both ATT and Verizon are good at worst

    Mobile hotspot is a paid service through Verizon that is an extra $20 a month,now if you root your device there is a free app called wireless tether that also works fine ( I use mobile hotspot but have used wireless tether in the past)
