    Hey everybody,

    Curious if anyone has a solution to this. I have been able to create ad hoc networks on my laptop, while on a train without wifi and airplay video from my iphone to my laptop using Airplayer from Erica.

    I am curious, without jailbreaking, is there a way to create a ad hoc network on my iphone or ipad that allows interconnectivity, so that I can use Airframe on my ipad to play videos from my iphone's streamtome or airvideo to the ipad?

    See, when I take the train home, which doesn't have wifi, I would like to play movies from streamtome or airvideo (which are stored on my computer at home) over 3g and watch them on my ipad's bigger screen. But with no wifi available, I usually need to create an ad hoc network on my laptop, something I am unclear I can do on the ipad/iphone.

    You cant tether without JB your iphone first. Unless you have an official tethering plan on your iphone.
