I'm not sure it's even possible? The way Steve Jobs made it sound when asked if you will be able to tether from an iPhone to iPad the answer was no. Jailbroken or not I don't think it would work - yet. If anyone else has a definite answer I'd appreciate it.

I don't have an iPad yet (waiting for my 3G), but I'll be stopping by the Apple store in a bit and if I can get my hands on a demo iPad, I just may have to see if it will connect to my JB iPhone via MyWi. I don't see any reason why it won't in general use because MyWi simply turns your JB'en iPhone into a WiFi hotspot. Easy peasy.

Zero, I'm running mywi on 3.0, works great. Though, I had to install it twice because it kept crashing upon bootup the first time around.
MyWi works great with the iPad!! The dev for that app is going to be making some serious coin now with the emergence of every new iPad owner wanting to thether they're iPhone if of course it's jailbroken.

I'm betting Jobs said no because if he said yes but only if jailbroken then everyone who has an iPhone and an iPad would jailbreak. I was thinking about waiting for the 3G model but forgot about MyWi. I'm def. going to buy MyWi when I get my iPad and have some 3G that I'm already paying for instead of giving AT&T more money which they dont deserve for their crappy network (ok its not that bad just frustrating at times haha).

Share IPhone without JailBreak?
Has anyone seen an app to allow 3g sharing on the iphone without Jailbreak? Has something like tinyproxy been created on the iphone?
This would require spending the $100 for the dev license to install the app but would be cheaper than spending the $130 for the 3g version of ipad.

You have a valid fear on that one! I've used MiFi and it is a big battery drain. I don't see it as a long-term solution because of this problem mainly. When I had it on, my 3G iPhone was ALWAYS drained at the end of each day (sometimes before).
I've been doing my best to try and come up with a best value solution and I'm pretty convinced that as much as I hate to I will probably pay the extra cost and monthly fees for a 3G version.
Also there's something to be said about the "elegance experience factor" when using an iPad. Do I want to go through the hassle of having to deal with MiFi/iPhone issues (things do go wrong) when I'm mobile using the iPad? Also since I would have to turn off MiFi or any other wifi program to conserve battery that would mean that I would be frequently turning it off and on again. I'm thinking not. I have a Kindle DX now and it's awesome to just be able to pick it up and read whenever I want and see the blogs and newspapers come in on Whisphernet without lifting a finger.
Keep in mind too that the wi-fi connection will not b at N speeds which the iPad is capable of so bandwidth will be an issue as some point.
Oh by the way, I'm new here and have been lurking reading all the messages the pass few days. Glad to make ya'lls acquaintance!
