    Does anyone know if you can use Tether (via Blackberry) and an iPad compatible application? The Tether app on Blackberry works very well on Leopard OS & Snow Leopard OS with the MacBook and MacBook Pro notebooks! Does anybody know if a Tether enabled Blackberry can work with the iPad thereby not requiring the 3G iPad model if just the WiFi model is purchased? This may by the deciding factor as to which iPad model I purchase...

    Yeah no tethering on a vanilla iPad but as usual there's a Jailbreak for that. I say get the 3G it's only $130 more

    Just read on another page that the new iPhone will tether but not to the iPad! Another really good reason to JB!

    I have resisted JB these three years trusting that AT&T would finally get its act together. This is the last straw.

    It may be easy to initially jailbreak it, but it's not for everyone. Most consumers will not be able to figure out all of the technical aspects of using a jailbroken iPhone. We always forget that not everyone is as technologically adept as we are.

    MyWi is VERY simple to use. Just turn on tethering and that's it, too easy. But I do see ur point. I think that most are too scared to try and talk themselves out if it before even trying

    What technical aspects? Download a file, double click on it..your jailbroken. Go visit the cydia app store and download.

    This is really hard stuff.

    Hm, how about managing processes? Springboard resets? Freezing? Possibility of conflicting apps (even the ones you PAID FOR) deleting eachother or causing crashes (has happened to me many times)? The possibility of bricking the phone?

    A lot of things are simple for you and me but not for everyone. I'm not saying I am against jailbreak myself but NOT everyone should do it.

    I have not ever JB my phones, but the whole bit about not letting me tether my iPad has pushed me to do it now. I could tether with another phone so why not this one? I'm actually paying TWICE for the luxury of using MY data and then they want to exclude my iPad? I don't think so. I have never been impatient and have waited for the updates instead of the JB, but this is too much. I paid for the devices and the services. I want to use them like I see fit. Too much control at this point.

    Sorry for the rant-

    One need not apologize for justified anger. The "steaming pile of failure" has strung us along for two years. Their business practices are even worse than their network.

    Agreed. Not much worse than managing my Treo but not for everyone. I have enjoyed not having to do it over the last three years but the "steaming pile of failure" has pushed me over the edge. I am doing my research. If I can do it, many can. The "steaming pile of failure" probably does not care, but perhaps Steve does.

    Thank you, sir. (Alli, please take note.) That said, it is a sad platform on which to run.

    I am sad that the popular press (e.g., David Pogue) have taken the AT&T bait (small price reduction on the first bit) without even noticing the hooks (huge premium on the last bit and huge premium on an (any that it chooses) application).

    Please consider adopting my signature line.

    No tethering of iPads via an un-JB iPhone. No problem tethering an iPad via a MiFi, Palm Treo or Pre. or any other device that looks like a wireless access point. Of course, that is the reason that AT&T/iPhone tethering does not work that way.

    Of course, at the price that AT&T charges for tethering via the iPhone, why would anyone want to do that. There are an infinite number of cheaper ways to connect an iPad, or almost anything else for that matter, to the Internet.
