    Quick question - Do I still need MyWi to tether my iPhone 3GS to my iPad?

    I'm on IOS 4.2.1, Jailbroken and use MyWi 4.0 to tether my iPad and MBP.

    I have the AT&T plan with tethering ($20 more a month) but it only has Bluetooth and USB sharing. Have they added WiFi Hotspot yet?

    MyWi works well but I'd like to keep up with IOS releases and really only used Jailbreak to install the MyWi app. That was before I decided to change my plan to include AT&T data plan with tethering. Now that I'm "legal", I'm asking if the latest IOS has a WiFi tether option along with Bluetooth and USB.

    I'm asking on MacRumors because I'll get a straight answer.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hotspot only applies to iPhone 4. 3G/3GS weren't invited to the hotspot party.

    You can use Bluetooth to tether to your iPad.

    Thanks eastercat and Applejuiced,

    3GS not invited to the party, that's the missing link! I keep reading references to WiFi but it's not there on my 3GS.

    I'll admit to never giving Bluetooth tethering a try, will have to do that sometime.

    I was waiting for the white iPhone4, but now it seems prudent to hang on a while longer for the iPhone5.
