I would suggest going with a MiFi device instead. MiFi units are pocket-size mobile hot spots that convert cellular data signals into a small Wi-Fi bubble good for allowing up to five separate Wi-Fi-enabled devices to connect. Where the Wi-Fi models cost $499, $599 or $699, depending on how much storage you get, 16GB, 32GB or 64GB, respectively, the iPad 3G starts at $629 and jumps up in $100 increments from there. The top-of-the-line model goes for $829. The question iPad buyers have to consider is simple: Is the extra $130 worth it?
    If your wifi isn't a LOT faster than 3G, you must be using ClearWire...

    The question I asked myself was did I want to "save" $130, only to spend ~$100 for a GPS to hang off the bottom of the iPad and another ~$150 for a mifi or equivalent, and have yet another separate item? Any way I looked at it, if I ever wanted either GPS or 3G my "savings" quickly went into the red.

    I agree, I have the mifi by Verizon and it's great, especially since I can connect up to 5 devices. I even managed to get a little discount on the price, and it's unlimited.

    How do you hook your MiFi up to your iPad? The one I have requires a USB port, something that os sorely lacking on the iPad.

    A Mifi usually creates a wireless network, which you can join from the iPad. The USB port shouldn't be used for more than charging, if it really only shares the 3G via USB, it can't be used with an iPad.

    You don't have to plug it in, it's a small box. It connects wirelessly. You just have to put a code in.

    I just enter my information through settings on my iPad and I am all set, there is nothing to attach to the iPad itself.

    I figured it out on my owm. What I have is not a MiFi, it is an internet stick, which is what Rogers had before the MiFi. While the Internet stick has saved me a fortune in hotel internet connections and has allowed me to work in remote siteswhere there was no internet cnnection, I kinda wish I had the real MiFi so I could also use my iPad in those places. Maybe eventually.....

    What's the best way of viewing movies? I've heard someone using an sd card and using an sd adapter thing you can plug in, but I'm new to this. Sooooo how do I get the movies on here, I have a 64gb iPad 2. ^__________^

    The easiest way to get legal movies on your iPad is using the video component of iTunes sync. You can sync a movie from an folder on your PC. I do this with digital copies from Blu-ray discs as well as movies purchased or rented from iTunes.

    The easiest way to view movies over wifi is probably the Netfix app. I use this quite frequently as well.
