I've discussed previously why the iPad 3G is almost not necessary if you have an advanced phone such as a iPhone 3G or a Droid. These both allow you to tether your iPad to a 3G signal with minimal inconvience and cost.
In order to tether the iPhone to connect to the iPad, your iPhone must be jailbroken. For my Droid, I just rooted it and installed the Ultimate Droid ROM which included a WiFi Tether App. I dropped a few bucks as a donation to the developer, and easy...breezy.
You can purchase MyWi from Cydia for $9.99. However, there’s cracked version available in Cydia via beyouriphone and sinfuliphone repos.
Don't want to spend an extra $130 on the iPad 3G? Then use MyWi to tether your iPhone's 3G Internet Connection to your iPad. This will also save you an additional $30 per month. This video will show you how to tether your iPhone's 3G or EDGE Data Connection to your iPad. This works on all iPhones-iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS. Data tethering using MyWi works on any WiFi enabled device. MyWi creates a WiFi network out of your cellular data connection. You can also set up a WEP key so that the network will have a password. This works on T-Mobile and AT&T as well as any other GSM cellular network.
