    You don't say whether you have a 3G iPad or not, so I can't give you an answer.

    He wants to do it with his iPad and iPhone so I'd guess he want's to use the internet connection on the phone.

    iPads can only connect over wifi when tethered.
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .

    I understood his question to be "if I can tether FROM my iPhone TO my iPad (via Bluetooth), how come I can't tether FROM my iPad TO my iPhone the same way?"

    I don't know if the option is there on the 3g but on the 4g if you want to pay for it personal Hot Spot can be set up.

    Personal Hotspot works with 3G as well. I have an iPhone 4 (which doesn't do 4G) and the option is there. It is not present on my (wi-fi) iPad 1 of course.
