Can WiFi only iPad be tethered to to iPhone for 3G data transmission. I already have an iPhone with data plan and don't want or need a second data plan. Can I connect the WiFi only iPad to iPhone with USB (iPhone) cable for 3G transmission.

I have had quite a few iPods over the years and have touch. The iPad is a great platform with critical deal breaker issues. I really feel flash is a major blow to rich complete surfing. Being a apple and pc a alway bashing each other, I do not care as long as they can provide the consumer a great product. Apple just about got there of course at an inflated cost. But worth it if iPad can perform.Let's assume flash is a minor compaired to the inability to do file transfers. I do not have WiFi acces at work to allow transferring of PDF, work docs and spread sheets. Can email to my self but no way to get it into my iPad. I have yet found an app to allow me to tether the USB cable to a standard PC and simple transfer the files.
I have an iPad 3 and I installed over wifi. So I never plugged it in my iMac or Macbook whatsoever. When I want to transfer files from an app to iTunes. I plug it into iTunes and now he askes me to configure a new iPad or restore from backup.. And how do I access the files in Itunes? Without having to reinstall my iPad that I have already in use...
As you can see in the picture below. It already has a name so I don't need to set it up, I dont want to create a new iPad and that he erases the deta
I'm wondering if there's some way I can transfer files to my ipad2 and store them in typical directories so that these common files can be launched with various apps. I've seen a million "file manager" apps that allow klugey transfers from a PC by setting up a network drive, starting the file manager app, then dragging and dropping files into the ipad, but this solution has a number of flaws for my purposes (something similar can be done in itunes, but it's far more limited):
1. I have to initiate the whole thing from my PC. This wouldn't be so bad if I didn't have to have the app actively running on the ipad too, which requires me to access both devices.
2. It still doesn't let me load the transferred files with any other apps.
3. They all have extremely limiting options as far as compatibility with file types.
What this leads to is a million file managers, each with an embedded web browser, pdf viewer, image viewer, and video player. So if I find that I like the PDF viewer of Goodreader (I do - it's excellent) but the picture viewer of readdledocs, then I have to have two distinct (and somewhat complicated) processes for transferring the different types of files over.
I'm guessing that what I'm looking for just doesn't exist, but it'd be nice to be able to actually have a universal file manager with directories. Then I could open any of my media apps and just load up any one of the compatible files.
Failing that, at the very least, I'd like a way to actually reach out to my PC and grab files to save in my various apps (like Goodreader). For instance, if I want to transfer a PDF file from my PC that has the files all shared on my network drive, and I don't want to leave my bed where I'm reading on my ipad. Possible? From what I can tell Goodreader and ReaddleDocs won't connect to network drives, and I have no FTP server or other similarly fancy file sharing technique.
Another scenario (same problem) I'm trying to address is if I'm at a friend or coworker's house and they have some files I'd like to get onto my Ipad for use/viewing (and they're too large to email). I also don't want to have to guide them through a 10 min process of setting up a network drive on their computer and transferring that way. I'd love to be able to just plug in and have them drag and drop the files or even to just grab them from a network shared directory.
Note: I'm not averse to jailbreaking if this is what it would take (when one is available for ipad2)
I have just bought my first IPAD [3 rd gen, no wifi] and one of the things I want it to do is to accept transfered word files, preferably as folders from my MAC - I just bought Keynote but it doesn't seem to work. My files are all doc and docx so I think perhaps looking into it more I should have bought Pages instead,, but I don't want to spend more money on another app if
I recently updated my iPad2 to iOS5. Now the video files that I used to watch are showing as being on my iPad (via ITunes and also on the device in Settings/General/About). However, when I select the Video icon it shows the black screen stating that there are no videos on the iPad.
I have many mp3 music files I downloaded from an early jazz web site to my computer, and want to transfer them to my Ipad. They are not ITune files. How can I do this? They are not organized and it would be nice if the program provided a means of doing so. I purchased my IPad in December 2012, and assume it is an IPad2.
Hard drive on my 2007 imac 24 in crashed!My last time machine save was about 9 months ago and Aperture 3 vault update was in May 10.That leaves about 4 months of loss of photos and music files.I do have a ipad will all those pictures in the past 4 months and music.How can I transfer back the files (photos and music) from the ipad/iphone to A3 or iphoto?
I have an iPhone 4, I had downloaded VLC media player from the App Store before Apple removed it a few months back. I use VLC media player all the time on my iPhone, works great! I should get my iPad 2 in the mail no later than tomorrow. I was wondering if anyone knows a way to transfer this app to my new iPad 2? I obviously haven't tried to do this after of yet since I don't have the new iPad in hand. Curious as to if anyone else has done this with VLC media player, or any other app that Apple removed from the app store? It is signed by Apple, so might I be able to manually add it to the iPad? I know with my iPhone which is jailbroken, I can find the .ipa file within the iTunes directory, double click it, and it shows as available to sync to the device.
I do not, I repeat, do not plan on jailbreaking the iPad 2 as of yet. Mainly because it isn't available at this point I don't believe for iOS 4.3, but despite that, I would like to use it as is for a bit regardless.
I know nothing about IPads and have questions...Can you use Media Player on the IPad?Does Microsoft Word & Excel download easily? Can you edit these documents on IPad or are they read only?Can you download PDF files easily?Also can you used Microsoft Outlook and how easy it is to use the calendar, contacts, is this easy to edit???
I have read many of these posts, and it seems as if it is either an all or nothing issue with the wifi. I can watch episodes on abc player fine, some delay at times, but I can understand why, but netflix has never worked, youtube only shows about 30 to 45 sec of video. Any suggestions to why this may be occurring? My network is closed, and is a wep password. I understand some have had issues with these settings, but why then can I watch some video and not others?

I have not had ipad1 (thought it be a bid big) but after I saw the tether option and new ipad thinness I had to have one (still waiting).
So I got a 32GB (based on what I used on my iphone I went with the 32GB) and no 3g I do have my iphone and did not need one more plan. Now facetime is wifi only anyway but works with a phone number on my iphone so how does it work on the ipad ?
After following various threads on how to get a non 3G Ipad onto the internet through the mobile network, I have finally succeeded by buying a phone off Ebay for ï¿½70 (Pulse Mini - already rooted) and installing free software (Barnacle Legacy). I now have internet access anywhere there is a mobile signal and no general wi-fi.Quite pleased with myself as I'm not a techno' addict and simply wanted to get my own wi-fi hotspot.
