    Hi guys, I've been offered an old 3GS after someone upgraded to a iphone 4. Instead of sellling it on ebay, I was wondering if I could jailbreak it without a sim card, tether to my ipad 3G while traveling and receive skype calls through it?

    It depends on a number of factors. You'll have to tell us which version of iOS you have and what happens when you connect to iTunes. If the phone is already jailbroken, this'll make things easier. Otherwise, there's going to be a bit of work to do.

    use MyWi on the ipad

    is it foolish of me to assume I could just use MyWi on the ipad, connect the wi-fi only iphone 3gs to the MyWi network and receive skype calls on the iphone 3GS?

    does a MyWi network remain active when the ipad is locked? hmmm...
