    A popular method of tethering your non-3G iPad with iPhone’s data connection is by installing MyWi and using it as a WiFi access point. The problem with using MyWi is that it uses WiFi which uses a lot of battery power. The solution to this problem is to use iTether which tethers your data connection using Bluetooth. iTether has to be installed on the device which will connect to your iPhone with tethering enabled. When tethering is turned on, your iPad/iPod Touch or iPhone can easily connect to it and share the data connection.

    Here are the benefits of using iTether over MyWi:

    - High performance
    - No jailbreak required on iPhone side ( if no patching )
    - Much lower battery consumption than WiFi tethering
    - Bluetooth 2.1 speed up to 3,000,000 bps
    - Clean interface with zero configuration
    - Rapid Bluetooth chip booting up
    - Better security than WiFi WEP
    - Free upgrades

    iTether has been developed by the same guy behind iBluever. To use iTether, you may need a jailbroken iPhone. Find out how to jailbreak your iPhone easily with JailbreakMe here. You need to have tethering enabled on your iPhone which can be done by visiting using Mobile Safari.
    iTether is available in Cydia in BigBoss repository for $5.
