    Hi - I didn't get 3G on my iPad and now regret it.

    Can you tether it to your iPhone like you can a computer?

    Is there a way around paying the extra tether charge?

    Thanks

    You can tether via wifi or bluetooth. Whether or not you pay a higher rate will depend on your phone carrier and plan.

    I've tried to link the phone via Bluetooth. Do I have to jailbreak or something?

    No, but your phone plan must support tethering

    Not necessarily true. If you jailbreak you can purchase tetherme from Cydia and tether natively.

    Plus one.
    Just remember that while it's not likely at all your carrier will know... there is still a risk that they'll discover you've been tethering and start charging you.

    This has never been the case in my experience though. :)

    Sorry. I guess I should say your phone plan needs to support tethering unless you plan to steal that service from them.

    This is very true. There have been some here that were caught. It was not pretty.

    Also worth noting that unless you are running iOS 4.3.3 or earlier, the "jailbreaking" options range from slim to none.

    And while it may not be an option or a preference of the OP, the tethering options for Android phones are considerably more numerous than for the iPhone.
