    Any way to retrieve a WiFi password from your phone? I've got a ridiculously complicated one at work that I forgot, but would like to use it on my iPad... (I.T. is less than enthused about iPads)

    The answer from me is "I don't know - however feel your pain!"

    However I put the WiFi password in Notes or in Action Menu under favorite and copy - paste when asked!

    There is a utility in Cydia that can retrieve them. I forget its name right now though.

    WiFi Passwords in Cydia won't help this time, but will keep this from happening again.

    maybe I read it wrong but why won't wifi passwords (off Cydia) work, if he put it in his phone already and its set to remember it will show up in the list.

    PS I have this and it works great!

    It will show up as a bunch of black dots - this cannot be copied and sent to his iPad (which is the device that he wants to use to access the network in addition to his iPhone).
