You need to have tethering activated on the phone and I don't think that was available on that model phone.

I'd suggest calling whoever you use for IT support for the business and talk to them about getting your wifi setup so that it is available anywhere on the grounds of the garden center.

3G is slow... slow... slow...

Even if you could tether it to your phone, you'd be miserable with it sitting there waiting to get at the the info you want/need.

A newer iPad with 4G access could be an option, although, in the long run probably more expensive than expanding your wifi network.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

good deal - how did you end up doing it? Tethered to your phone or did you end up extending the wifi on the property?
