What is the best way to get wifi to my new tablet?
Go to Starbucks?
PB only recognizes wifi in infrastructure mode. Which means it wont see wifi made with the free wifi hotspot apps like wifi tether and barncle. You need to use the official wifi hotspot that comes with the phone. Either pay 20 bucks/month or try to cheat the system using a method like this ...

Damn.....but thanks for the tip!!
I might try it out but it looks kinda sketchy! lol
Even if you pay for the tether it is still cheaper than going to starbucks.
Anyway to tether my Samsung Gio on stock 2.3.4. Gingerbread firmware to my Playbook via Bluetooth? I heard that Bluetooth tethering would use less energy than using the wifi hotspot feature.
When I try to connect through bluetooth, the two devices pair up fine. But at the stage wherein the Playbook asks for the wireless provider, no settings seem to work out right (with Bell Mobility in Canada). The result is always my android phone cannot be found.
Has anybody been able to successfully tether over bluetooth their android phone and Playbook? Just wondering if I am stuck doing wifi hotspot, though it's just the battery drain I'm concerned about.
Thanks for any thoughts on bluetooth tethering!
