    I want to tether my IPad 2 non 3G to my iPhone 4. Is it possible without jail breaking either ? What cables are needed. Can someone post detailed instructions, Do I have to notify AT&T?

    Thanks in advance. ThePhotog

    Your iPhone4 needs to be running iOS4.3 - then you can set up a 'personal hotspot' (see the iPhone's 'Settings' page). No jailbreaking necessary. Your iPad can then tether to this hotspot. Some service providers (and I think AT&T are among them) require you to have a special 'tethering contract' before you can enable this feature.

    Have you upgraded the Firmware of your iPhone 4 to 4.3? There's an option called Personal Hotspot that allows your iPhone 4 to share data with your iPad 2. Go to apple.com for more info.

    It's easy with iOs 4.3

    Set it up on your iPhone but be prepared to pay $45 per month (no contract).

    I'm only considering tethering if we are on vacation. I wouldn't mine paying a month at a time.

    Set up new iOS 4.3 on iPhone 4 and 1st gen iPad last night. Nothing changed on phone, doesn't give option to create personal hotspot.

    Awesome! Thanks for explaining...I hope the 45/month isn't true.
