Im determined, however hopeless it may be, to have a mobile phone minus the full carrier plan commitment. I think I have the equipment I need, I just need the help to make it work. I have the iPod touch 3rd generation, running ios4 iPad 3G (unfortunately running 3.2.1) My plan is to create a wireless hotspot on the iPad, tether the iPod touch and essentially have a Skype connection that is always on. Issues and questions maybe you can answer? iPad running 3.2.1 is not jail breakable unless I restore to previous OS? My iPad has been through the jailbreakme.com method twice and its bricked it both times (full restore as a new ipad required); have iPad 3G related fixes been made to jailbreakme.com? Any wireless hotspot created on the iPad will shut down when the device is locked? I did consider a mobile wifi device like Sprint's MiFi, but it's $60 a month.
