    Have there been any reports of anyone tetherine the iPad to their iPhone using MyWi? I'm thinking of getting a WiFi only iPad, but only if I can tether it. I don't see why one couldn't but I'd like confirmation.

    Thanks!

    When you talk about tethering it is really not connected via cable just sharing the net connection using the wifi on the iPad to connect to the iPhone right?

    beside the bad effect that mywi drains the battery too fast: yes it works, it works with ANY device which supports the wifi b/g protocol

    iPad won't have a crippled support...that is not allowed.

    but mywi drains the battery faster than it can charge...that is somehow a bad thing to Li-ION batteries =/
