Share the cell data?

How best to share my Internet connection from my Nokia E63 S60 to my iPad?

I have Walmart Family Mobile which includes very reasonable Internet access rates and want to share it. WFM is rebranded T-Mobile USA. Actually I'd like to buy a pocket modem to share the cell data and use this with another line but hey, they don't offer it.

Have you tried JoikuSpot?

If you can tether the iPad to the E63 with Bluetooth, it will use much less power than WiFi. JoikuSpot is a battery hog. It won't be very fast. The E63 doesn't do 3G on T-Mobile. If at&t has decent coverage where you are, you could do Straight Talk with the at&t SIM instead of WFM and get 3G speed. (or switch to a phone that does 3G on T-Mobile, like the E6 if you want to stick with Symbian and the same form factor) There is a 2GB data cap, though.
