After doing an Apple "chat" I found out that if I want to buy an iPad 2 from them online, it will come without a micro sim card. Since I live in the country, I don't care to drive 30 miles to the next AT&T store to get one. With Verizon I was told that I had to call them first to be able to connect. What's the matter with these people? I buy online because it's a lot more convenient.
When I bought my Kindle last year with wifi and 3G, I could get online without trouble and order books, etc.
Anyway, the Chat person at AT&T had an Indian name but he answered ALL my question and I decided to buy an iPad 2 directly from them.
With the 2GB data plan for $25 and $10 for each additional GB I should be able to survive.
Since there's no wifi or BB where I live (you hear me Obama?) I'm using a Virgin Mobile BB modem with the now extinct unlimited data plan for $40 a month whenever I want to. Need to top off every month. I got one bar and speeds from 230 Kbps to 1 Mbps according to my Windows Task Manager.
I hope the iPad will be as "fast" even though I don't know what the AT&T signal will be. But then I have a chance to return it within 15 days.
Question: Those of you who have iPad2 with 2GB data what do you pay over and above the $25/month?
