    If you have a WiFi only iPad, the only way to connect to the Internet is via WiFi. If you tether to a personal hotspot form a device capable of generating one, you can connect to the hotpot with WiFi or bluetooth. If you have a WiFi + cellular iPad, you can connect to the Internet with WiFi or a cellular data connection.

    The problem is my iPad is WiFi only. And I was mention earlier I travel a lot and bus and trains don't have any WiFi hot spot. So I was thinking is any other way. Is there any device which can give me cellular data connection. Because there are lots of that kind of device are available for android. So if any please let me know. And by the way thanks for reply. :D

    I carry around a Sprint hotspot to create wifi.

    Your cellular provider should be able to help you obtain a MiFi device, which is used to generate a WiFi hotspot.

    Your android phone can provide cellular data connection.I also got a wifi only model and if I need internet connection on the go I turn my android phone into a wifi hotspot using the free app called Foxfi.This is assuming that you have a data plan for your phone.

    Thank you all. Really appreciate your help. I turn my iPhone in to a router and create a WiFi hot spot. Thanks again to all for your suggestion.

    Hi,

    Other than wifi-hotspot, is it possible that I can share my internet on iPhone 3Gs(tethering) and connect via "bluetooth" (after pairing the ipad mini with iphone 3Gs)

    i hope it is possible, because i'd prefer bluetooth to wifi-hotspot for battery consuming purposes..

    Bluetooth tethering has already been mentioned in this thread, they both consume a lot of battery power from the phone generating the hotspot.

    Bluetooth tethering only draws slightly less power than WiFi tethering. Have you considered tethering with the charging cable connecting the phone to the USB port on the computer?
    Here is the Apple page on tethering. http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3574 According to it, you can only do WiFi or USB tethering.

    I'm already using usb tethering with pc; but it will not be possible with my new ipad mini, since it has no usb port.
    I'm not sure that i will manage to make a wifi hotspot with my old 3Gs (jailbroken&unlocked), i even cannot upgrade its iOS to 4.3 keeping its unlock..

    So, BT-tethering will be my only option, sadly.
