    3G

    I doubt one will come. In my case I tether to my jailbroken iPhone and it works great...

    Maybe a DIY self project once parts start showing up on fleabay. But I can't see anything official.

    You don't really need an adapter you can either tether to your cell phone or get one of those portable hot spot devices.

    Most likely written on my iPad

    That's what I am using and it works very well. My only gripe about it is the battery life which seems to be around 4 or 5 hours.

    My wife and I love our Sprint 3G/4G Overdrive... If you are a two iPad family, this is the only way to go.... We love the option to connect our laptops as well.. a Huge added bonus... I have not had one problem connecting into the 3G network network yet, and had a chance to connect into Sprints 4G in Portland last week.. I cant even tell you how fast 4G is.. It makes my broadband almost look sic....

    Only downside is if you had to sign a 2-year contract. ATT can be canceled at any time.

    I dont recall saying i signed a 2-year contract.. did i accidentally write that.. I dont think so.. I actually picked up a new 3G/4G Overdrive for $50 to my door.. No Contract... Come and go as i please but i dont see that happening anytime soon. BTW- you should be able to pick up the Overdrives for $50-75 bucks, no contracts on eBay.. just keep your eyes out..

    And I did not say you did. I said "if", meaning I was unsure if you had or had not. I also am unsure if a 2-year contract is required to use the service. You go to Sprint's website, and you see "Requires new line or eligible
    upgrade
    with a 2-yr contract".
