    Just got an iPad 1 and I have no sim in it yet as I have broadband in the house for my Internet. I was wondering how do I get Internet access when I am travelling in the car going to Manchester next week I have an htc sensation phone can I use the sim. Out of that or what do you suggest I do I don't think htc sensation xl can sync with iPad but hey I maybe talking rubbish here please can I have a quick response :eek:

    Tethering depends on your carrier. You would have to check with them for an answer. Sometimes it can just be better to get a sim for what you need on the iPad if they charge too much for tethering.

    I have no idea what UK carriers offer, or are required to do. In the States, general practice is to charge $20 (12.4 GBP) to allow tethering, and charge a monthly fee of $30 for a 2-3 Gb usage plan. If I remember right, some UK carriers even offer a day plan for usage, and some plans are by Gb, no matter what the time frame. That is why I suggest talking with your wireless carrier.

    I was told by a '3' store, that they would disconnect my phone if they detected my using my iPhone sim card in the iPad.
    I successfully paired my iPad 2 to the iPhone via Bluetooth. Worked perfectly.
