    Does your phone (what kind?) have a mobile Hotspot option installed as provided by your 3G service?

    Is it up and running with a name & password?  You can find out by looking in Settings>General>Network>Personal Hotspot, that's where mine is seen.

    If it does, and it's working correctly it should show on your iPads Settings>Wi-Fi>choose a Network.

    Just tap the Hotspot, enter the password and you should have wireless service on the iPad.


    My Sprint iPhone 4 w/optional mobile Hotspot works just that way, no problems.
