Good day,

I have a Blackberry Bold and an ipad2.  On my Blackberry (BB) I have a data package where I can connect to the internet using a tethering cable between my laptop and my Blackberry.  is it possible to "tether" my BB to my ipad2.  I saw some articles about bluetooth but i do not know much about that. Can you help me?

    Nope. If it dont have an Apple stuck to it and you havent paid Apple a few hundered pounds, you cant tie anything to your iPad :P

    This capability is in BlackBerry OS 7 devices - if you have the new Bold 9900, you should have it?
