    Activate the hotspot on your iPhone or stand alone hotspot. Go to your iPad - settings/wifi. Select your hotspot and you are connected. Done.

    If your carrier has a plan for it, you can do the same process (as described by WolfPuppies3 - for the iPhone) on the iPad. Once you've activated the iPad3's hotspot, your computer should be able to locate the WiFi signal so you can log in and start using it on the computer.

    Again, you have to start with the carrier and make sure it's part of your iPad's data plan...

    It's in the settings menu, right under Bluetooth.

    You need the cellular version and a cellular plan. Hotspot is included at no extra charge with Verizon in the USA.
