I have searched endlessly on the Internet to find a solution, but haven't found a single useful thing. So I'll ask you guys. Is there any way to share iPad 2's 3G Internet with my MacBook ? If possible without jailbreak? If it is impossible, does anyone know ways around it to make it possible?

There is an HTML5 app which will allow you to turn your iPhone into a personal hotspot without any jailbreak or extra apps. I don't know if it will work on iPad though...

And a second solution is not what you want to hear. The most easy solution is to jailbreak it indeed. There is an app in the Cydia store called TetherMe ($1.99). And it will allow yout to turn your iPad in a personal hotspot within the minute. It's super easy to install and very useful when you're in a desperate need of a 3G connection.

And these days, jailbreaking is as easy as it was before, so I'm not sure why people are against it since you won't lose your warranty or anything alike...
