    OK, maybe a dumb question, but I have to ask....

    I have wifi at home, no problem, but at work I have to use 3G....
    my question is, when I turn the pad on at work, lets say on ibooks, am I using my assigned (2GB)amout of 3G? I know if I'm on the forum or eBay I will be, but if I'm on a dowloaded app, like ibooks, will I be using 3G time?
    If so, is there a way to temp turn it off? I don't want to cancel the 3G, just turn it off...

    sorry if this is a silly question, I did a search but didn't find what I needed...

    Thanks All.

    I believe that if you are just reading in iBooks you are reading an already downloaded book. Turn off your 3G and see if you can still read your book.

    Yes. In settings click airplane mode at the top to turn off internet while you're reading books or doing other activities you don't need the internet for.
