    Verizon Data Sloooow. Ipad 2

    I ended up snagging a Verizon Ipad 2 on launch day because the guy in front of me snagged the last AT&T version. I thought I'd give it a try because of everyone touting its reliability.

    Needless to say I am disappointed. Many times the Ipad is 3X slower than my iPhone 4 and it rarely even hits 1Mbps.

    I think I am going to return it or flip it.

    Anyone want to trade an AT&T version?

    This varies depending on where you live. I live in Boston and my ATT iPad drove me nuts on weekdays in the city due to network congestion. By 3pm the progress bar would freeze for 20 seconds at a time loading pages. I thought it was just the nature of 3G until I bought a Verizon iPhone. It screamed in speed compared to my iPad. So I went with the Verizon ipad2 which is slightly faster than my IPhone 4. No more ATT in Boston for me.

    I bought a Verizon 64g at Walmart Saturday morning by mistake. The clerk told me it was the AT&T version. I have the Ipad 1 with the unlimited AT&T plan and planned to transfer it to the Ipad 2. I was going to return the Ipad 2, but I decided to try Verizon's service and activated their 1g plan. In my house, I get a solid 3-4 bars and can watch Netflix movies at very good quality. I have no AT&T signal on either my Ipad 1 or Iphone. I am thinking of dropping my AT&T unlimited plan and keeping the Verizon Ipad 2. Between AT&T and MyWi on my Iphone and Verizon on the Ipad, I should have a greater chance to connect to decent 3g service with my Ipad 2 when traveling.

    Yeah, 3G speed will totally vary by area as that will determine which signal is better for you, how loaded the network is in that area etc.

    I ordered the 32gb 3g version at a verizon store today. I paid for the ipad2 in full. The rep said, "there are 600 ipads in fulfillment. Call the 800 at 5pm today to see if you get a tracking number". I don't know if he was BSing me but he said this after I bought the thing. Guess I'll find out.

    One reason to get the pad on att is the possibility of using the pad over seas. You may be able to pop in a local sim card and get 3g service while traveling.

    Verizon doen't work well at all at my house but, it works well every were else. I use wi-fi at home and, I also have a clear Ipsot so, it's not a big deal to me. I just got the Verizon one, just in case.
