Anybody got a URL to tell us how to accomplish this wonderful trick??!

Default iPhone creates wifi hotspot for iPad! GIF at 11!

An a PC World article on Froyo:
http://www.pcworld.com/article/19691...ys_android_2_2
_froyo_tops_apples_iphone.html?tk=rss_news

The first response, of course, is from a loyal iFan to states flatly:

"All the 7 things you metion above I can do it all with my iPhone 3gs.
What's the big deal? iPhone is very use friendly phone, especially the
multitouch screen Android is lack of it. For though who's heavy cell phone
usage I would recomend the iPhone over the Android."

As the Froyo demo included the new Android OS creating a wifi hotspot for
the iPad Google showed connecting to the net through the Froyo phone,
Someone need to find this genius and ask him how he's got his iPad wifi
tethered thru his 3GS so he only has to buy one account from ATT (or T-mo?
He doesn't say).

I'm sure MANY Iphone/Ipad owners will be interested in how to get iPhone to
become a full blown wifi hotspot like the Android Froyo OS provides.

"Tethering is not currently offered in the U.S. and some other countries.
See your carrier for availability."

Bluetooth is worthless for tethering. God it's SLOW!

No, the poster said his would tether using the wifi hotspot from the
iPhone, not old Bluetooth.

Thanks for the information, though. I've never see it tethered to anything
but the simplest of headsets.

That describes tethering Macs or PCs to iPhones via bluetooth or USB (and
not via AT&T!)

Presumably the iPad can't tether to an iPhone via USB, and won't tether via
BT.

You'll need a jailbroken iPhone and an app like PDANet or Netshare to tether
an iPad to it. Or, of course, any of a variety of other smartphones that
can emulate a WiFi access point.

A swing and a miss, iPad can't tether to an iPhone to use the iPhone's
data connection even if your iPhone plan does allow tethering.
