Sorry I thought I'd entered tethering into the 'search' box - I want to tether my ipad to my iphone 4 - currently I'm with giffgaff £10 goody bag but they don't allow tethering - any recommendations please - Roger

They do not allow tethering, but that does not mean you cannot tether. I don't have iPhone, so I cannot give you exact directions. I do know that you can setup wireless hotspot on iPhone and connect iPad to it.

You do need iOS 4.3 for wireless hotspot on iPhone, there are applications available that can do that. Can't give you directions, but I know that my coworker has iOS 4.1 (unlocked and jailbroken) on his iPhone with iPad connected via WiFi.

Yes, Jan mentioned you can do it by jailbreaking your phone... where is he? Jan, advice please :)

if you tether on gg and they find out they will put a data bar on your account.

The wifi hotspot 'app' in iOS4.3 nor the jailbreak options won't help if the network's not supporting it. It may work for one web session, and then they'll catch up.

Tbh, it's been a few months that I used a jailbreaked iPhone, so maybe some kind of workaround/spoof exploit has become available to trick the network?
I'll have a look ;)
