    Good to hear from you. Youíll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Donít be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ĎSearchí button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad


    If you donít already have it you can download a copy of the iPad manual for free.

    Help from anyone will be appreciated.
    You will have no problems if you are happy to accept data roaming charges. But you might need (a) to check with your service provider that roaming is enabled on your account, sometimes it isn't by default and you have to arrange for them to switch it on and (b) when you get there go to the iPad's Settings app and under 'cellular data' enable roaming.

    If the roaming costs worry you, then I would suggest purchasing a local SIM when you get there as the costs will be considerably less.

    However Tenerife has WiFi virtually everywhere - hotels, bars, malls, restaurants etc so you probably won't need 3G too much.

    If you need a list of service providers and coverage in Tenerife I can send you some information

    So, Tim, If I am in a Wi Fi area, say an internet caf'e, if I switch on the ipad it would use the nearest freepoint? and it would be the same as at home?

    Yes - if there's free WiFi you'd join the network automatically - you would (probably) get a pop-up screen asking you to confirm that you want to join (there's an option for that in 'Settings'). It might be an unencrypted network - but one that's *not* free - in which case you'd be redirected to the service provider's web site where you'd be invited to sign up for a, say, 1 hour period and have to enter your credit card details. But many franchises these days - i.e. Starbucks, MacDonalds - including most hotels, motels etc offer completely free WiFi access. Once you'd accepted the 'pop up' message you're in!!!!

    You'll be surprised - WiFi is everywhere...

    Have a great time there - and, please, send iPad Forum your experiences...
