Mobile hotspot

Hi 

 

ive got a blackberry bold 9900, that has mobile hotspot, i connect  my iPad to the mobile hotspot which is great, however, orange charge me £1 a day to do this, I know a £1 a day seems pennies, but over a month it can add up,  is there any other way of connecting? 

 

cheers

Re: Mobile hotspot

The charge for the mobile hotspot and tethering IS controlled by your mobile provider, in this case Orange.

 

You can discuss with Orange if they have a cheaper tethering or hotspot plan.

Re: Mobile hotspot

Well, I said that, and you can to a laptop, etc., via bluetooth, but I just don't know about doing so to an iPad.
