    Firstly, no I haven't done a search, as I never have luck with that, and prefer an answer to my post.

    I would like to know how to tether my ipad wifi only to my iphone 3g. I am with telstra with the phone and have heard about this tethering but that is the extent of my knowledge.

    I look forward to any responses...that answer my query WITHOUT sarcasm LOL.

    Jailbreak iPhone and then download PDANet to it. That will allow you to wirelessly tether to the iPad.

    That is new to me.
    I thought tethering is when you have one device that has no access to internet, and you are using another device (mobile phone) that does have access, to act as a gateway for the lesser device.

    Now you do have 3G , so why the need of the tethering.
    Yes probably there is some one time service charges, for connecting the iPAD to Internet under the same account as the phone, but I think it is worth it.

    In my Country I have a 10Giga internet access on my Nokia E71 with our local provider. As I got my 3G iPad they open my iPAD to use the same account. I can be at the same time on my E71 and on my iPAD surfing the internet.
    In my case there was Zero additional fee, since it is a company account. If it was a private account, it could be a one time fee of about $30.

    But you know every country every provider is a different story.
    Just wanted to share some international info here.

    He doesn't have a 3G iPad, he has an iPhone 3G.

    Yeah there are multiple programs out there for it. I only suggest PDANET because it's what I used when I had my iPhone.

    Should work, must be a simple setting somewhere. Can't help you specifically though, because I just do wired tethering to my laptop from my Galaxy S using the EasyTether app.

    Hi Gav

    This is where Apple really need to shape up. I have a Nokia X6 and use JoikuSpot to tether my iPad. I do have an iPad Wifi+3G 64gb version, but i have free internet on my Mobile, and almost never use my iPad without wifi, so why should I pay for free internet on that also?

    Oh, and by the way, android phones 2.2, now have this as an embedded function.
