I bought an Android tablet without the SIM card bits because I have an Android phone with an unlimited data tariff so I can use this for my data when I am away from WiFi.
O.K. - let's test it out.
My phone offers three tethering options:
USB (which IIRC installs some drivers on a Windows PC to make it a network device)
WiFi Hotspot (which should work for any WiFi capable device so is the easy option).
I am assuming that the WiFi option will be fine because I've used the phone as a WiFi hot spot before and the tablet has working WiFi. However I will double check.
O.K. - Bluetooth. Pairing the two devices is pretty straightforward. Turn Bluetooth tethering on in the phone. Look for the tethering (or similar) option in the tablet - something to say 'use the Bluetooth device for network access'. Nothing obvious - in fact no network configuration as such in 'Settings'.
Google tells me how to use a mobile-enabled tablet in the same way as I would use the phone - as the network (server?) side of the tether.
I can't find anything which tells me how to use the Android tablet as a client of a tether.
Possibly nobody has bothered - or doesn't want to encourage this because they sell less expensive tablets.
Anyone solved this?
