Tethering: iPad 2 16gb wifi

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Anyone have any idea how to get it to work?

I have a blackberry bold 9780, and an iPad 2 16gb wifi.

AFAIK you have to have a jailrbroken iPad to do it, but you can't jailbreak the iPad 2 yet, so that doesn't help..

Anyone?

If you want to use your phones 3g connection then the iPad does not have to be jailbroken. The one on the other hand may or may not support tethering, this usually depends on the carrier and the phone.

I wish you jailbreak the iPad 2, I just got mine today and did some research on jailbreaking it but guess I'm out of luck, for now.

you can jailbreak 4.3.3 but not the iPad 2. You're out of luck mate.

I can tether, but first I have to call my provider to offer it to me; like one user said, a mobile hotspot.

Tethering depends on the phone, not the iPad. If your phone can tether, your iPad should be able to connect to it. If you cannot get your phone to tether, then no matter how jailbroken your iPad is, it can't tether.

Tethering is sharing your phones internet to other devices. It depends on the phone.

I'm quite aware lol. I meant I need to call my provider to set up a hotspot. Jailbroken or not doesn't matter.

If you are aware that you don't need to do anything to your iPad, why did you ask?

LOL^

And, there's got to be some kind of CFW for BlackBerrys to teather without the provider knowing/setting it up/paying for it.
