The fact that 3G is generally not that great on mobile phones is the reason I didn't get a 3g iPad. I can only imagine it being a painful experience waiting for pages to pop up on the iPad. And how slow would it be when the signal drops from 3G to edge or something.
Still better than nothing - and 3G is supposed to cover the area this summer.
Obviously I opted for the 3G because my iPad goes where I go and it's nice not to have to search for WiFi.
That looks like a great, great addon to an iPad or an iPod touch. The GPS was the only reason I even briefly considered the 3G version. Thanks for the information.Originally Posted by Mountainbikermark
Time to start saving my shekels!
I have wifi at home my work and usually any other place I visit (ie friends,Starbucks,panera) so I just used the money I had and upgraded to a 32g and I'm happy I did. The extra space has come in handy.

I got just the wifi version because my main usage is at home or friends. I have the tethering option with my htc evo. I may go that route for when I'm work or whatnot.

I didn't go for 3G purely because I already have a mobile contract. I guess the pay as you go option is there, but on the whole I'm happy with 64GB wifi.
I don't know how much 3G PAYG costs to run, but I imagine if you use it a lot then it could become quite expensive. Most places I go have a wifi network I can use, and I have yet to be found searching desperately for a connection
This is difficult for me! I got the wifi version because I have an iPhone 3GS and didn't want to pay twice for something I've got already but I don't seem to have very good 3G reception around here, where I work or live. I know others do but I live in the country and mainly get 2G. I'm on O2/Tesco because it was the cheapest deal at the time, probably still is but maybe someone could suggest another supplier who knows which works well in my area! I have checked all of them on their coverage maps and this suggests the opposite to me! Confused!Originally Posted by Vintage90
I'd like an iPad 2 with 3G but would this work for me! When in Yeovil, which is the local town for me, it works brilliantly in the shop, but when I get home, zilch! That was a 3G dongle for my laptop. I wasted money on that I'm afraid so went BT instead. Any suggestions?

I bought a 3G model and must admit I'm more than surprised with the speeds I get from the '3' 3G network. Way faster than I ever imagined. I went away last week for a few days on a boat on the Norfolk Broads. Most of the time we were in the middle of nowhere. The vast majority of the time I still had a decent 3G signal. I couldn't believe it.Originally Posted by Andyvalver
Like most I'm on wifi, but with a cheap PAYG sim, the 3G functionality really does come in handy from time to time and I'm not locked it to a contract. I actually bought a 3 micro sim from eBay that gives me 3gb over 3 months for just £8.99! Bargain!
