3G data plan
I am using a wireless and thinking of upgrading to the 3G. However, I am confused on the data plans available on AT&T. I am not computer savy enough to determine which plan I need based on the data I might be using. Mostly I will be checking email, reading news, accessing Westlaw. I will rarely download or print anything from the iPad.
Can someone recommend which data plan might better for me?
Suggest you buy the cheapest one, then see how much you use. You can always add more if needed.
A good option

Totally thinking this way, Kevin.

I just can't see spending $30-80 for smartphone data plans.
Comcast Internet2Go @ $25/mo for 2GB 3G, or $40 4G unlimited (and/or 5GB 3G) is the clear winner for Comcast customers who use at least 1GB/month.
Virgin Mobile 3G Broadband2Go @ $10/10days for 100MB, $20/mo for 500MB, $50 unlimited comes in 2nd, if you use under 500 MB per month
Thanks for the TruConnect info. For minimal use (200 MB or so), TruConnect is a better choice. For the cost of a Starbuck's coffee, it would also be good for a home internet backup even if you don't use it.
