    Is there a simple device that will allow me to connect my iPad and iPhone? I have the wifi only iPad, and, when don't have wifi available, iPhone connection would add remote usability and phone connectivity. Your suggestions? Dennisski81

    If you have an iPhone4 and the latest iOS you can set up the iPhone to be a WiFi hotspot in 'Settings' and the iPad can connect to that - nothing else needed.....

    No - unfortunately, I don't think it will. I think - but I am happy to be corrected - it has to be an iPhone4.

    You can use Bluetooth tethering to connect the 3GS with the iPad for Internet access.

    Dennisski,

    You don't say if your iPad/iPhone are jailbroken, and/or what carrier you are subscribed to with the phone. The legit., paid tethering plan would have to be paid for and enabled for that kind of operation, or.... you would have to add one of the jailbroken apps which will establish a tethering scheme on your phone. With pre-4 models, I'm not sure about the fine details of it all, but that's the basic requirements to do what you are asking about.

    I have both the Verizon paid tethering plan, and also MiWi running on both iPad2 and iPhone4.

    From Dennisski .. AT&T does not support Bluetooth connection to Ipad 2

    After spending a lot of time with AT&T, I changed my account to access both Hot Spot and Bluetooth tethering. The Iphone3 would connect only for a short time, then disconnect on the tethering and would not reconnect. Working with AT&T, they researched the problem through three different levels, and came back with IPhone3 does not work with tethering the IPad 2, unless I wanted to wire them thogether through ups cable. To do that, I would have to turn off the WiFi on the Iphone. So I changed back my account to the less expensive ($15 dollars/month) 2 Gig service.
    Please let me know if you have another solution.

    My 3GS and my iPad tether with Bluetooth, no problem. I don't know about the standard 3G.
