Seeing as the advice is flowing well today :-)
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
WiFi Hotspot (which should work for any WiFi capable device so is the easy
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?
