    Sure is, as long as you have a tethering plan (through your carrier) for that Android phone. The iPad doesn't care what device is putting out the wifi signal - as long as there is one, it'll work fine.

    I can confirm this works well, tethered to my Samsung SGS2 and my wife's HTC Desire.

    That's great, my mobile is also the Samsung Galaxy S2 so I guess there should be no problems. Thanks for the help

    I have a Samsung Galaxy S. Check your phones under settings/wireless and network, the should an option called Mobile AP, use this to get your iPad to connect to the phone and it's very quick and simple to use.

    Sent from my iPad using iPF
