Hey tallpoppy423,

 

There will be a setting on your mobile handset that will allow the data allowance via that service tethered.

 

What was the make and model of the mobile device being used that the iPad will tether to?

Yes, if the iPad is tethered to the device then you should be able to use the data allowance on your phone, please let me know if you need any further assistance.
