Really stupid question but need answer
I apologize for asking what has probably been asked and answered several dozen times already. But, I'm a newbie and never owned an Apple product before until I received a new Ipad as a gift. It is not 3G so when not near a WiFi hot spot, I have no service. I called Apple and was advised that there's no way to upgrade my Ipad to a 3g model in order to have access to AT & T service. So, is there anything I can do to make my Ipad in order to hook into a cellular phone service broadband connection? I have a small USB device from Verizon for my PC that allows me to hook up to the internet where there's Verizon service. But, since the Ipad has no USB port, obviously I can't use it. Do I have any options. The MiFi device that Verizon sells appears to require a USB port which, once again, won't work. Do I have any options or am I forever tied to use my Ipad only when in range of a WiFi hot spot? Thanks for your patience in responding to this.
