And, does Sprint offer a data service for iPads, or would I have to go with another carrier for just that?
You don't need a SIM. The GPS chip is part of the 3G machine, and works even if, like mine, it doesn't hav a data plan.
You just have to make sure your maps are available off line.
Sent from my iPad using iPF
One final question about which model I should get. I'm still leaning very heavily for the wi-fi only version, but in the 64 gig storage model. I have seen where you can make your iPhone a temporary mobile "hot spot" and use your wi-fi iPad via your iPhone. Yet, I go to a site that shows how to do it, and it says something about going into your "settings" menu to do this. No where in my settings menu on my iPhone is there a bar that says, "set up mobile hot spot" or something similar to that. Any ideas? I'm using a Sprint iPhone 4S with Siri.
I wanted to save money, and looked at my use of my iPad 1 when I was upgrading to the 3. I went with the 32GB over the 64Gb simply because I never used all the space. I did a hard look at the games I was playing and the number of movies/music/shows I had and decided that the 32GB would suit. I am happy with the decision, though I do pay more attention to what I put on the iPad now more than I ever did previously.
If I were to upgrade again, I would probably move back to the 64 (or, 128 if we are lucky with future models). More so I dont have to pay attention than anything else.
It all depends on YOUR INTENDED USE
I would get the 64 gig. I did with the iPad 3, and though I am somewhat conservative about what I have on there, I've already used up about half the space.
This may be disallowed by Sprint. I'm in Canada, so I don't know about US carriers, but if you have the capability, it will be in Settings/Personal Hotspot.Quote:
