Default Nokia e71 to Samsung 8.9: is any form of tethering available?

I wish to tether my Nokia e71 to my Samsung (I have a 3G SIM card in my Nokia). There do not seem to be any options to use Bluetooth tethering on my Samsung. I installed Joikuspot on my Nokia, but my Samsung does not recognise the new network - the Joikuspot forum states that "Some Android tablets block ad hoc wifi connections."

I do not wish to allow root access on my Samsung - even if there is a solution.

Is there any way that I can share my e17 internet with my Samsung?

I don't know why wifi tethering wouldn't work. I can do it from my HTC phones to my SGT 8.9.

As far as bluetooth is concerned, will this work:
Android AdvicesHow to Bluetooth Tether Phone Internet to Galaxy Tab Tablet

The ROM looks similar to the 8.9's, but I'm running a custom ICS ROM so I can't say for sure.

I've tried using Smart Wifi Scanner, which can detect AdHoc networks. It finds the network from my Nokia, but when I try to connect I get "AdHoc is not supported by Android Platform yet!". I suspect that this could be fixed with a custom ROM but I don't want to mess with my new investment! I was also not able to detect the AdHoc network with my son's Galaxy SII running ICS, so I suspect that this won't be possible when the 8.9 upgrades to ICS.

I think it takes more than this. This method describes how to pair the two devices, but every time I've used Bluetooth tethering in Linux I need to run PPPD and write a script that contains the APN. I daresay this could be done with Android with a custom ROM too.

So it looks like I just need to purchase a data SIM card and not do this

I am far from an expert, but I used my G2 to tether my GTab all the time so I'll offer this. When I configured my wifi hotspot on my phone, I set it up with WPA2 PSK security. That worked wonderfully until I became the proud owner of a TMo mobile broadband device.
