How To Avoid iPad Internet Charges or Tethering Blackberry 9630 To iPad!

So I purposefully ordered a non-3G iPad that uses AT&T or Verizon for three key reasons.  First, I didn’t want to pay the ridiculous fees for internet service on ridiculous bandwidth/usage limits.  Secondly, while 3G is hot today, it will be obsolete in 12 months when 4G takes over and you’re going to wish you […]
