    Do you regret not getting 3G?

    Thanks to all who have helped me this week. I'm certain that I will be selling my Kindle to buy a 32 gb iPad from the Apple Store. The last part of the equation is wifi or wifi with 3G. Many have said they love the 3G because it helps them in spots without wifi. Others have told me that it's a waste of money since my house is wifi and I am home more than not.

    I want to know if anyone without 3G regrets that decision and find themselves in empty spots without wifi, whether it's at work, traveling, or a friend's house.

    Thanks again!

    I cant open mine till christmas, but already know its 3g. We pretty much pick our own presents in my family. Alls I can say is that even though I have wifi at home, if the Ipad didnt have 3g capability, I wouldnt want it. I want to be able to get onto the net regardless of where Im at and when ever I want. Otherwise, whats the point?

    I have the 3GS and I can't think of any thing else. In my country we have a lot of wifi spots, but not every where. The GPS that comes with it is extra, but handy. Got 5Giga for a little more than 10$ a month.

    I don`t have the 3g model and don`t think I would use it if I did.

    I`m not that mobile with my computing, I`m either at home or work.
    If I`m going out somewhere I don`t generally need a computer.

    However I`m a guy who barely has a use for a cell phone so take it with a grain of salt.

    I dont regret it, ATT service here sucks big time, so was not worth spending the money on a 3G version, and at the time, verizon didnt sell it.

    3G is non existant where I live.. Even the Edge service is marginal. (The nearest tower is 10 miles away). But I got a 3G unit anyway.

    The dedicated GPS receiver they put in the 3G version makes it a bit more versatile than the WiFi... You get extremely accurate location accuracy even with WiFi and 3G turned off.. I don't know why they didn't put GPS in the WiFi version. I would have regretted buying a strictly WiFi iPad.

    Ditto what kingsmuse said! I use my cell phone so little my daughter in CA has offered to add me as a second line! When I go to trade shows, the hotels have wifi. Enroute I can read a book or play games. I don't need the Internet available every minute to get plenty of use from my iPad.

    Wifi only here too and I don't regret it a bit.
    Hotspots are everywhere, most of them being free, I don't feel the higher
    price justified.
    Specially that I already have a mifi, with which I can simulataneously cater for my laptop and iPad
