Since I switched mobile providers, I can no longer use my iPhone as a personal Hotspot. The company doesn't allow it, and I didn't realize how convenient it was until I no longer had it.
I used to connect my iPad (Wi-Fi only) to my personal hotspot. Since I am no longer able to do that, I am wondering if I could buy a mobile hotspot and use it in a similar manner?
I've never really given it a thought as to how all the connections are made between devices. I'm guessing that the iPad + iPhone connection works differently. The iPhone is not offering the iPad a 4G/LTE connection, is it? I'm thinking that since the iPad can't access the cellular network, then it won't work with the mobile hotspot.
Since I am not sure what type of connection the iPhone and the mobile hotspot offer to a another device like a tablet, I'm really clueless as to whether or not it would work.
