    Tether torch to iPad 2???

    Hi everyone.

    Is there a way to tether a BB torch to a wifi iPad 2?

    I have the Rogers 6GB data plan with the n/c 1GB tether feature.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Cheers!

    You can't unless you had an iphone with wifi tether or android with wifi tethering. Otherwise bb can only be used with usb tether or bluetooth to pc or mac.

    If you can jailbreak the iPad 2, you can install iBluever and Bluetooth tether to the Torch, but you may need to wait a little for that.

    Thanks for the response everyone.

    I'll wait until something comes out. Hopefully there will be something that doesn't require jail breaking your iPad.

    Cheers!

    I'm using 1.5.1 on default settings. It's set to dial *99# and APN is internet.com. Username and password are blank.

    For whatever reason, I never seem to get good 3G speeds like everybody else here. I just ran a quick speedtest on my Torch and got 351 kbps. I then tethered my iPad to my Torch and ran the same speedtest again on the iPad and got 645 kbps. Depending on where you are located, YMMV.

    The last time I used that app, it was pretty slow.
