Just set up Personal Hotspot on the iPad using Wifi and it will set up a WiFi connection that you can join to on the iPad.

Loismustdye: I thought some providers prevented tethering, obviously im wrong. :-)


As far as I'm aware the primary place that's a thing is North America.

Anything I say is the ramblings of an ill informed, opinionated so-and-so, and not representative of any of my past, present or future employers, and is also probably best disregarded.
