Will an ipad tethered to an iphone 4 via personal hotspot be able to make facetime calls?
As far as I know, you can only use FaceTime via Wi-Fi. The answer to your question is most probably: No.
It should yes.....as the personal hotspot can be used via WiFi. Make sure to make a wifi connection and your iPad will have no idea it is on a 3G connection.
thats what i thought....
anyone tried it?
it should work according to apple peeps
i went to apple store and they said it should work on iphone4 hotspot because it is a wi-fi. it will not work tethered to a iphone 3g/s because it is not considered a wi-fi.
It works. Using ATT iPhone for facetime, wifi to a verizon iphone running as a hotspot.
Using my iPhone 4 as hotspot, FaceTime works great on my iPad 2. I don't leave it on just when I want to make a FaceTime call or the wife sends me a text to let me know she is going to FaceTime.
As long as you use the wifi tethering as opposed to Bluetooth, this works.
Your iPad thinks it's connected via Wifi so you should be able to FaceTime.
You cannot tether to a 3g/s to an ipad at all!
Nonsense. There's always bluetooth tethering.
the iPad definitely differentiates a tethered connection from wifi. tethered is 2 rings and wifi is standard wifi icon. I tried while tethered and it didn't work, maybe i was in bad area, I will have to try again since several people are saying it works.
