    Found this info on Wikipedia:

    Tethering means sharing the Internet connection of an Internet-capable mobile phone with other devices. This sharing can be offered over a wireless LAN (Wi-Fi), Bluetooth, or by physical connection using a cable. In the case of tethering over wireless LAN, the feature may be branded as a mobile hotspot. The Internet-connected mobile phone acts as a portable router when providing tethering services to others.
    Many mobile phones are equipped with software to offer tethered Internet access. The operating systems Windows Phone 7 (built-in starting from version 7.5 Mango), Android, (starting from version 2.2 Froyo), and iOS (only after jailbreak or running iOS 4.3 or higher on iPhone 4 or iPhone 4s without jailbreak) support this.[1] This feature, on the devices bonded to some operators, was available before, but now this feature has been disabled and can be reenabled only by 'rooting' devices and using the Linux iptables application.[2]
    Android devices offer tethered Internet access even with the latest version, Android Ice Cream Sandwich. Some operators however asked Google or any mobile producer using Android to remove this service. [3]
    Tethering is available as a downloadable "wifi hotspot" application on most Symbian mobile phones [4] as well as on the MeeGo platform. [5]

    I love my tmobile service because they don't charge me for doing this. I hardly ever need to because I'm around wifi at most places I use my iPad.

    We're specifically talking about tethering an iPad with an iPhone or Android phone here. Why would someone tether with a cord when the iPad has no USB plug, but it does support wifi and Bluetooth?

    I am very confuse , may I know it is possible to set my iphone3s with ios5 to allow my iPad 1 to access internet ? If yes can share with me how ?

    As I aware iphone 3S have personal hotspot , it does not have wifi hot spot.

    When I try connect using blue tooth I found that it cannot pair .

    Hope some one can share with me.

    You have to use Bluetooth to connect. Keep trying- it will pair eventually.

    Just got an ipad2 after discovering I could bluetooth tether my friends ipad2 to my droidx2 phone with verizon. So far it's worked with the droid X, Droid 2 and Droid x2 all running 2.3.4. This connection uses your existing data plan. No mods or roots are required. VERY nice having internet on my ipad2 anywhere I have 3g service. Oh, it's the wifi only ipad2...
