If you put a non-ATT sim card in an ATT iPad 3, will you be able to use the wifi hotspot feature?
not without a jailbreak tweak.
the hotspot isnt based on the sim, its based on the software. The gsm software doesnt have it on there (without a jailbreak)
that stinks. Thanks for the answer!
I think if you have a SIM from a carrier that allows the hotspot option, then the option should show up. You might have to fiddle with the carrier account settings though.
I mean, the AT&T iPad is the same hardware and software as the International iPads, and International iPads allow hotspot tethering where the carriers allow it, correct?
not sure, i put a t-mobile sim that has hotspot and it didnt work on my ipad att. Not sure about other carrier sims
Search for "iPad hotspot" turned up discussions on using iPad hotspot with various carriers, so it depends on the carrier. Did you try inputting the APN settings for t-mobile?
nah i didnt, its prolly just the apn like you are saying. I wonder if there is a custom apn for att to hotspot, like the iphone 4 apn back in the day
T-Mobile doesn't support 4G LTE yet, T-Mobile could work but at Edge (2G) speeds only. Does iPad 3 even support 2G?
