    wi-fi help!

    I am about to purchase an ipad2 either in store or on ebay.. and i am just looking for the ipad 2 wifi only 16gb, my question is, will i be able to get wi-fi access right off the bat without having to do anything but turning it on? espesially if i order it off ebay? like do i need to pay for some sort of data plan? or what, mainly wondering so i can jailbreak and unlock it. Thanks much.

    Yeah after you plug it in to your computer to register it, you will be able to use it on your home wifi network or any wifi network.

    You'll also need the latest version of iTunes running on that computer to activate the iPad. You can find it on Apple's site. Apple - iTunes - Everything you need to be entertained

    And you really only need to post this once. Just pick the forum that makes the most sense to you. Most of us read them all.

    Your iPad will auto recognize any wifi available and attempt to connect. If it's an 'open' wifi when you will be connected right away. If the wifi has a password system or and acceptance of terms requirement then you will have to respond to that request before you will be connected to it. You can also connect to your cell phone if your cell phone is set up that way. I connect to my Droid X all of the time with my iPad if there are no other wifi connections available.

    There is no data plan for WiFi

    Data plans relate to 3G. You will not have that access if you purchase a WiFi only pad.

    Why would you need to jailbreak it?
