iPad 3G+Wi-fi or iPad Wi-fi only? Why not just tether?

Are you in the market for buying the new iPad 2 (or iPad 1G) and undecided between what model to choose? You may save money by buying a Wi-Fi only iPad and then tether it to your hotspot-enable phone.

Benefits of Tethering your Wi-Fi-only iPad


  1. Cheaper iPad Wi-Fi model.
  2. use MiFi (like this one) or mobile hotspot feature of your phone.
  3. Single SIM card, no need to buy a new microsim for your iDevice.
  4. Pay as you go. Use what you want, when you want.
  5. No more reloading the SIM card of the iPad (to keep it from expiring as well)
  6. Instantly activate the all-surf promos of Smart, Globe or Sun via phone.
  7. You can even share your wireless hotspot to other 4 devices at the same time.


  1. Your phone’s battery life
  2. You must shell out additional 5,000 for a MiFi device (if you are going this route, better buy the iPad 3G+Wifi since you’ll be adding roughl the same amount. Then just jailbreak and get MyWi to be able to make your iPad a wireless hotspot itself.)
