  • Best Answer:

    No. There is no means to connect the iPad to the iPhone for tethering. Of the two supported options for iPhone tethering, USB and Bluetooth, the iPad only has the built-in hardware for Bluetooth. The iPad camera kit's USB is not designed to be used for this purpose. However, the iPad doesn't have any documented support for using Bluetooth modems, which is the Bluetooth mode when tethering to a computer with iPhone.

  • The short answer is no. I have a mobile WiFi hotspot from Clear(wire) and the iPad wirelessly connects to that so that I have internet everywhere (where Clear has a presence).
