If you are with someone who has an Iphone they can become a "WiFi hotspot" so that you can use your IPad and access data by linking onto them. I am not sure if other smartphones have this wireless hotspot thing but it is great. I can use my laptop in the car just by enabling the hotspot app.
I know I can do that,but haven't learned how yet. There's an app for that? You need to use another device? I have an iPhone.

Right now I have a $15 a month data plan for my iPad. I turn off the data when I'm home or other wifi connection so it's been fine and that's not too much too spend for all the enjoyment I get out of it. I do want to learn about the hotspot though.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
