3GS doesn't support WiFi Personal Hotspot.

How did you get the iPad and iPhone working together using Bluetooth? I have never been able to get my iPhone to see my iPad or my iPad to see my iPhone via Bluetooth, let alone for using the personal hotspot, is there some special trick?

Yes but, you can use the hotspot with anything that connects to wifi, I have used it with iMac's, MacBook Airs, Blackberry's etc... none of which use iPad OS 4.3

I first updated both devices

I turned the hotspot on my iphone on, originally was not right under settings (it is now though), turned wifi off (not necessary but I did) on both devices, then turned bluetooth on my ipad on voila my iphone showed up under devices

oh by the way I am not using jail broken devices by the way

Ah, so 4.3 is required on the iPad to see the iPhone over bluetooth? I haven't updated my iPad to 4.3 yet so that could be the problem there. I just wish someone could figure out why the Wifi sharing doesn't work. I tried restoring my phone again and still no luck.

That is really strange... when all else fails, I'd take the phone and iPad to an Apple Store...

So an update, out of desperation on Friday (the Wifi Hotspot I was using just went away) I went back and tried the Personal Hotspot one more time without having changed anything. This time it worked. It has seemed to work intermittently since then. Between this and something I found on the Rogers Community forums I believe this to a localized Rogers problem. Just because they did something right by letting people use the Personal Hotspot without charging any more, doesn't mean their network is any better than it was before. I can't wait until my contract is at a reasonable buyout range so I can dump them for someone with decent coverage in Saskatchewan.
