I was going to get the WiFi/3G of the IPad, initially, but had since ran across some information which aided in the changing of my mind. I had heard/read, from a number of others, that you could forgo the 3G data plan for the Ipad if you had a data plan for your smart phone (I will soon be replacing my Droid2, that fell into some water, not long ago, and will be another smart phone w/data plan). What I had heard/read was that you could use such a phone as a hotspot for your IPad.
Today, however, I was talking with a saleswoman at Best Buy, who informed me that this was not the case. In order to use an IPad with a 3G/4G smart phone, you had to pay an additional charge for a separate IPad data plan. If that is right, then I am kinda in a lurch. What I ordered (in light of the first info given) was the 32GB WiFi only version.
Now, of course, that salesperson could have been misinformed - and could have unintentionally given me erroneous information. But I hope that someone, here, could help shed proper light on the matter.
