I would like a thread which compiles a list of phones capable of providing a wifi iPad2 with data/internet, either via bluetooth or a mobile wifi hotspot. I could not find any information on this as most information on the topic is only about iPhones. I recently bought a wifi iPad 2 and my friend was able to share his data/wifi connection via bluetooth from his iPhone 3. I tried to do this with my Huawei U1250 but the iPad said the device was incompatible. What are the restrictions on bluetooth tethering? Is it a hardware compatibility issue or is this an Apple thing? I realize most new smart phones are capable of a mobile wifi hotspot but I do not need a smart phone, have an iPad. Are there any dumb-phones out there which can become a mobile wifi hotspot? If you have any recommendations for phones, please specify the carrier frequency as I am from Canada and for religious reasons must use AWS aka Band IV (T-mobile). But feel free to list GSM or other hardware. Which phones can tether data via bluetooth? Which phones can tether data via mobile wifi hotspot? Thank you.
