    I'm not sure if this can be done or not, but anyways, can I use my Sprint Blackberry (with a card of some sort) to make it a hotspot and then use WIFI on the Ipad?

    Anyone with suggestions?

    Have you tried PDANet? I think that's about the only way with the Blackberry, and you have to use the Bluetooth, not WiFi connection. Very much slower. 30 dollar one time fee.

    pda NET nor Tether will create the HOTSPOT needed for the ipad those apps are for bluetooth or usb tether. So far BBs can't do this sort of connection. :( so I traded up and got a 3g ipad instead of my wifi only. Can't give up my BB :)
