Simple answer is No need 3G as most wifi around of us.
Useless u need gps or use internet if where not available have wifi around.
Simple answer is yes-I don't have 3G phone and use ipad at work and in car where there is no wifiOriginally Posted by DJP1984
I bought my Ipad last May and since AT&T service here is not great thought about options. We have wifi all around in my small city, from our DT square to drs. offices, to car repair waiting lounge to grocery store, Home Depot, fast food places, libraries, etc. But, in addition, Verizon was offering the Palm Pre Plus with free mobile hot spot for several weeks then and it was just time to renew our contract with new phone so went with that and wifi only 64GB. I do very occasionally tether when we are traveling but not often. When our contract is up in about 13 mos not sure what I'll do. It will be about time for gen 3 and I'll likely upgrade then so may go with Verizon 3G or perhaps in gen 3 they may be standardized. For now, I'm glad we went with wifi only(added another 32GB wifi only for husband in August) and mobile hot spot. Next time I'll have to rethink it LOL.
If your area no wifi that is fine need 3G .Originally Posted by craig1912
My point is - if your area where alway wifi present what is a point use 3G.
If there no wifi present so use 3G model it is will be great usefully.
since every town or city, some village alreadly has wifi which more fast that 3G and what a point if there wifi.
For me I will get 3G for gps navigator and back up if there no wifi area as I like hike walk around or travel around which might need 3G just case
I sure million users more use wifi at home or cafe etc there have wifi. Where 3G waste some people money.
I worry some iPad user waste money. They need research their daily life before bought 3G model
If you don't need 3g, never will, but would love to have true GPS functionality Bad Elf makes a unit for about the same as the difference between wifi only and 3g that plugs into the 30 pin port.
I went with a 3g unit because to me it's better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it. Had there been a manditory data plan I'd have gone wifi only and hot spot from my phone
