share BB internet with IPAD 2?
 
I have IPAD 2 wifi version, and BB 9700 with data plan. How can the IPAD to use BB to get to internet? via bluetooth or wifi? Is there any software that I can make the BB 9700 as wifi hotspot?

Thanks!!

You can't do it with software because the BlackBerry doesn't have the proper hardware to support this.

Google search for "cradlepoint router" and you will find some options.

The BB cannot be used as a WiFi hotspot, which is what you would need to use it with the iPad.

No. The functionality does not exist currently.

I found this thread regarding share internet(Finally!: Tether Blackberry to iPad via Bluetooth (ipad wifi ftw!) - BlackBerry Forums at CrackBerry.com), seems working for many people. However I tried and doesn't work yet.

Did you jailbreak your iPad?
That doc is also for a CDMA BlackBerry Storm 9530. Setup might be different/impossible with a TMO 9700.
