    Hi slinky-welcome. I don't think you can with your iPad 1. You can use your phone as a hotspot to your iPad, but your first gen iPad won't be able to itself.

    Welcome to the iPadForum! This Forum offers so much information related to the iPad (original-New), Acessories, Apps, Help, and Apple News.

    The iPadForum also includes a Regional Ipad Group for international users across the world. This is a wonderful area to "find" members from your own country.

    If you have not done so, please take a look at the iOS 5.0 and 5.1:

    Unfortunately, you really can't run Flash on the iPad. We've made this sticky here to explain what's up with Flash: http://www.ipadforums.net/showthread.php?p=374941

    So, please, have a look at it ... and please understand why we really don't talk much about Flash outside of that sticky. Thanks.
