    The version of iOS shouldn't make a difference as its the phone which is outputting the wifi signal. If your iPad sees the signal, no matter what it's from it'll be able to piggyback it.

    Piggyback.....must be my Englishness! It means to be carried on the back of someone else (so using someone else's legs to get you around) which in this case is using another devices connection to give your iPad a wifi signal. I hope that made sense, I may have confused myself......

    I believe that this is for Contract only users.

    I'm PAYG with T-Mobile, and have recently bought my iPhone 4s directly from Apple, and was given my iPad 2 (Wifi) for my birthday.
    Unfortunately, as I'm PAYG, I can't create a personal hotspot, nor do either idevice see each other via bluetooth, which sucks, as I have an awesome package with T-Mobile, where I have Unlimited Internet.

    I'm reluctant to jailbreak either idevice, which brings me to my question.

    Is there a way, without jailbreaking, to create or share the iPhone's internet?

    I'm so glad Netflix doesn't moan about being Wifi only on my iPhone, and just uses the available 3G (what little it finds).

    Thank you,
