Hey,

Wondering if anyone can help me. i won an ipad2 at a poker tournament but it only works when I am around wifi. I want to be able to use it on the sideline of my football games but there is never any wifi at the fields. Is there something I can do/pay to create my own wifi from my ipad?

Tripwire,
IPads vary, some have 3G or 4G capability, some do not. I would check your documentation first. If your IPad is 4G capable, then you must activate it with a cell phone provider to use it. Another alternative is to use your cellphone as a "hotspot", which will create a small area of WiFi. Be aware that some cell providers will charge extra for the hotspot, and not all phones have the capability.
Hope this helps,
John

Ahh thanks much! Do you know if you can make a hotspot with your ipad?

I don't think you can use it that way. To get access to the Internet, you need to install a SIM card and activate it like a new cell phone. You will incur a monthly charge based on your pkg or usage. Some form of Internet Stick or as Guido said turning your Cell phone into a "Hotspot" would be the other alternative.
