    I have a 3G iPad 2 and I'm using a prepaid data plan. I wanted to share the 3G connection with my MacBook Air but I cant seem to tether it using Bluetooth. Ive tethered using my iPhone 3GS before. Shouldn't I also be able to tether using my iPad 2 3G? I need to send an email with an excel attachment ASAP but I have no wifi.

    The only way I can think of is to grab the excel file off the MBA somehow, Good Reader is one way, but I am not sure if it could be used to connect iPad to MBA without an existing wifi circuit, and then to send that email with your file off the iPad. Maybe others will chime in with more straightforward solutions, today is my only first day with an iPad2!
