    Default Doesn't work messed up 3G
    Can someone exactly describe what to do?

    I have downloaded the full version of MyWi and turned on the WiFi. Then I went to MyWi and it said broadcasting.... could see the iPad on MacBook Pro and select it but no internet connection was established. Turned then WiFi off and tried it that way, wouldn't work either.

    Then I tried to open any website on my iPad over 3G and it wouldn't work either.
    It says "Can not activate cellular data network" "Safari can not open the page because there is no Internet connection". Full 3G coverage is visible on the top left corner.

    It messed my 3G up.

    DON'T DO IT.

    MyWi messed up the APN 3G settings... just fix this and it should work again on the iPad.... It also works on my MacBook Pro

    Steps to do again....

    Download MyWi

    Check if 3G APN is still set up the way it has to be....

    turn on WiFi and connect with your Laptop

    Should work.

    This will only work if you are out of your usual WiFi (home zone wifi)

    Very interesting. I will be happy to buy the app if and hopefully when they update it with better ipad support. I experienced the same issues as were described above.
    And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream! Springboard screwy after reboot? Here is the fix
