Hi,

Is this possible and has anyone tried this? I am in the process of buying an Ipad 3/4 depending on the budget.

Thank you.

I doubt it is possible. Either spring for the 3G version, use your phone as a hotspot or buy a wifi hotspot modem like the R205.

Answer, NOPE! It is only able to be used with cameras and USB sticks. Maybe with a Jailbreak - but I wouldn't count on it.

spring for an iPad 4G version as it also has the GPS chip, I didn't regret spending the extra money for a second, also you don't have to remember to keep multiple devices charged.

The difference between a 4G and Wi-fi only version is $200

A R208 is $199 so bugger all difference.

Also the Ipad 4 should be ready for LTE speeds when they become available.




I know a little more than nothing but not much...
