I currently have an Ipad 2 that does not have cell wireless and the same is true of my wife's Ipad 1. I'm ready to give the Ipad 1 to the kids and my wife gets the IPad 2. The wireless in our house is fine for 90% of what we do, a lot of times we get free access at airports and hotels, that's another 5%. It's the remaining 5% that makes me want to get the full blown Ipad 3 with the cell option. My wife was an Iphone with AT&T and my cell phone is also with AT&T.
Last year I spent a few weeks in the Philippines, of course we purchased a cheap cell phone to use. For internet access we had a special card for the laptop but it constantly crashed and was full of issues. My wife's brother had his laptop and if he had it on we could link up. Bringing a laptop anymore is a pain, hardly any good PC games anymore (except Black Ops) and a lot of extra weight and size to carry around. I keep reading about the difference between AT&T and Verizon but don't get any clear answers.
What I need is best option for a person that wants to pay $30-$50 ($80 is getting a little steep but possible I suppose) just during vacations. Also would be nice to works overseas, can another sim card be placed in the IPad 3 with either plan. If I stuck with AT&T would the bill be part of our current bill, any leverage with all the add on taxes and extra changes?
