I am always on the go and I always take my iPad and I wanna know if there is a way I can use my iPhone 3gs as a personal hotspot so when I am in the car or away from the house I can use my iPhone to connect my iPad to the internet. I wanna tether my iPhone to make it a hotspot but I don't want to pay the price for it and I don't want to jailbreak! What can I do? Do you have any ideas of what I can do to have my iPad connected to the internet while I am not near a WIFI hotspot. I am not going to pay for the 3g on my iPad because I have that model. So what things do you recommend me for making my iPhone a wireless hotspot without Jailbreaking or paying for it!

What wireless provider do you have?
Anyways there was once a app that got into the app store that let you tether it but that app got quickly pulled by apple. So unfortunately the only way to tether your iphone you will need to jailbreak it.
Also AT&T has some kind of system where they know someone is tethering. And if you keep tethering they will automatically sign you up for it with or without your consent. But they will of course inform you that they are signing you up.

YES & NO:
There were some APPs that sneaked by Apple, and briefly made it to the App Store. The hidden feature enabled "Tethering". The many that bought said apps can tether without additional cost &/or need to jailbreak.
The "Apple Kill Switch" can be used by Apple &/or Carrier to uninstall apps from iPhones, iPads, etc. People that purchased an app that enables tethering may find that app has been/may be uninstalled.
If your iPhone 3Gs is NOT jailbroken, then I don't know how you can disable the "Apple Kill Switch".
