    Default Using external modem with iPAD (phone or usb)
    Can't find much on this subject. I'm looking to connect some type of device to my non 3G iPad for internet connectivity. Some phones can run as a modem - I'd like to do this. I'm on TMobile, so my iPhone won't cut it speed wise (WiFi connect to iPhone). I'd like to buy a real 3G TMobile phone, and plug it into the iPad for internet connect...

    Anyone have any ideas?????

    I got my WiFi only iPad with the specific intent of using Sprint Overdrive 4G mobile hotspot with it.

    I also have my Nexus One (T-Mobile 3G) that I just upgraded with the latest Android Froyo (v2.2). Froyo comes with wireless and USB tethering support, so if your option is limited to T-Mobile then I think an Android phone w/ Froyo is your best bet.

    So you were able to get this thing working with mywi on the iPad??? Can you put out a few more details? To clarify, we have a 3G iPad, and want to share that connection...

    Yes - we are using ATT due to the low monthly all you can eat cost ($30). We are TMobile for everything else (iPhones etc). I know TM is slow (only edge).

    You want a MiFi. Sprint offer them, i have got one with the 3 network here in the UK.

    They are like a little router that take the data signal and transform it into a wireless hotspot anywhere.

    Up to 5 devices can connect to it at once.

    Mine is perfect and it's tiny. Only thing is the battery life lasts about 5 hours - not as long as my ipad. A spare battery is 11 on ebay and i will be investing shortly
