iPad Tethering

If i do manage to get my iPad unlocked and use giffgaff, I would like the option to tether aswell. So if I buy a gigabag....

 

1. Can I tether it to my laptop too from the iPad since it's all on the same plan?

 

2. If I do want to tether, is there an official settings apn file for the iPad so the built in Hotspot feature will work? As it only shows if you use an official profile, if you put the settings in herself, it doesn't work.

 

Thanks.

Re: iPad Tethering

Gigabag is fine for tethering - not sure about the hotspot feature though, I know iPhone users need to jailbreak in order to tether though. Jailbreaking an iPad is very simple though either way :smileyhappy:

Could anyone link me to where I could get the official profile so I can bookmark it ready? Thanks.

Re: iPad Tethering

you can use the giffgaff gigabag to tether.

I think the ipad has no specific tethering facility with giffgaff... so it will need unlocking before you can do that!

I don't think there's an official iPad set-up as such - when you have your iPad unlocked simply follow a guide like this :smileyhappy: http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Learn-giffgaff-Top-Tips/giffgaffer-s-guide-to-iPad/td-p/2519167
