I place the Sync password in my IPhone 4S and IPad 3 and once in a while I will get the WIFI symbol on the Sync screen but mostly I don't. Before I pay extra for a wireless WIFI devise and add money onto my plan, I would like to know if I can do it through Sync or not.
Thanks for anyone's assistance.
Hey, Ken -
Hopefully you received my PM.
For anyone else interested in creating a Wi-Fi hotspot, you must tether a line on your phone or use a wireless air card. I recommend using one of following:
Sierra Wireless USB 598
Sierra Wireless USB 308
Sierra Wireless 250U – SYNC supports CDMA only
Sierra Wireless Overdrive
Mercury USBConnect Mercury
Here's a link for how to get started:

Just go to the User CP link in the dark blue banner above, then look for "Send a New Message" over on the left hand side about halfway down under "Private Messages", start typing "FordIVTeam" in the Recipent box, and a link for FordIVTeam should pop up.
Don't expect a response until Monday during regular work hours.
You know me well, whynotthinkwhynot, thanks for the referral!
