You should be able to create a wifi hotspot on your iPhone and use that.

"and how?"

No idea, I don't have an iPhone.

In settings under personal hotspot, turn that on, then search for the wifi network on your fire and enter the password that is shown on your iPhone.

A Fire can use a significant amount of bandwidth so you may need to check your contract to see how much you have available per month. If you only use it for browsing and email you'll probably use less than 1GB per month but watching TV or a Movie via the internet could use that much in a day.

I dont use the wifi hotspot on my phone cos of a) battery and b) my data allowance on my phone doesmt include it. Instead I have one of these TP-Link M5350 High Speed 3G Wi-Fi Unlocked Modem (HSPA+, 21.6Mbps, 2000mAh Internal Battery and LED Display)
