    How to connect without 3G?

    I purchased my iPad2 several months ago; having never used the 3G with my iPad1, I didn't see the need to get it with my 2.

    Now I am finding myself away for a few days where there is no WiFi available. Is there a way to connect? I know a few providers offer hot spot devices, I don't want to do a contract.

    Any suggestions? Thanks.

    There are some carriers that offer monthly data plans. You buy their device and prepaid when you need it.
    iPad 3rdG (iPad TNG), iPad 1stG (Seadog's iPad), iPod Nano (2ndG), iPod Nano (6thG), iPod Touch, 2006 iMac, 2011 Mac Mini, 2-2010 MacBook, 2010 MacBook Pro, HP Z200.

    No smartphone, otherwise I could tether. Just purchased a Virgin Mobile Hot Spot. Can buy data when I need it. Once I've used it I'll post a review.
