    So, I have an iPhone 4S with tethering. I just ordered an iPhone 5. When I am in random places, I often tether my MacBook Pro to my iPhone and use the iPhone's 3G internet.

    Can I do the same with an iPad, instead of a laptop?

    My father thinks it should be possible to tether an iPad to an iPhone. I think it might be possible, I don't know, but I think it might be not allowed, because AT&T and Verizon want you to pay for 3G service for your iPad. Phone companies always want more money, it seems only natural they might restrict tethering.

    Is it allowed? Have you done it successfully?

    Tether, no.

    Mobile Hotspot, yes.

    Tether requires a cabled connection. In order to connect your iPad, you have to have the ability to use your phone as a hotspot.

    Will an iPhone 4S on AT&T give you that capability?

    There is an option on AT&T's website for tethering, but it doesn't say anything about a hot spot.
