Expert:  Richard replied 3 years ago.
ok, it is not going to be possible Jennifer.

I was hoping you have an Android phone (as its operating system).

LG make both a very simple phone (yours) and an Android Model which can share internet.

But a lot of places have WIFI now. EG: here Click Me

And nearly all hotels, so it is possible you will be able to get internet on the iPad via the Wifi (and mostly it is free).

But not via the phone sorry

If you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
