I have iPhone
v4ios (phone problem cant install latest os)
I have ipad
no 3g ios 5.01
I just did this test
turn off wifi
(i am in a wifi zone and for test want to eliminate that as a source if you have 3g ipad you should turn thatnoff so the only data option is the tether)
On ipad Go to settings - wifi - off
On ipad go to Settings general 3g/data roaming off
On ipad go to settings-general-bluetooth-bluetooth on
go to settings-general-bluetooth-bluetooth on
On the ipad go to settings-general-bluetooth (your phone
should be listed)
On the iphone go to settings-genal-bluetooth (your ipad should be listed)
On the ipad select the iphone - it should ask on both devices XYZ would you like to pair - select allow
Both devices should grind a bit and show "connected" - if it doesn't I have had to do a warm shutdown on both devices in the past
On the iphone go to settings-general-network-select internet
I had to wait about a minute or two and then on the top left of the ipad screen
where it says "iPad" the are two concentric circles indicating the tether is on.
I am posting
this post and downloading google
maps right now via the tethered phone
. Its way slow and way expensive but it works and on differrent ios's to boot.
Hope this works for someone else...
