    Hi Quake--

    Welcome to the Philippine Regional Forum!

    Nice to hear from you and your thoughts about the 3G on your iPad 1. I would have just assumed that the 3G would be more in favor to buy versus the wifi brand only, because of limited wifi hotspots in the PI--but it doesn't sound like if from what you are saying.

    Regarding the Huawei MiFi device you have and use-is that pay as you go to use? Or do you pay a monthly fee for its use? I am looking into buying my parents one for when they travel back and forth to the PI and am curious about it's cost etc.

    Thanks--

    Skimonkey!

    According to those that I follow through twitter, yes it is, but not something to be really concerned about.

    Hi Wilgie--

    Well, since I live in the USA-I bought it in my hometown! I guess that we are lucky that way when it comes to immediate availability of the Apple Products when released.

    I have the ipad 2, so didn't feel that purchasing the newest one would be necessary for me. At the earliest--I will look at the one for next year.

    I am also hoping that a smaller version, such as a 7 inch ipad will be released later this year. That would be very handy for me! :)

    Mga rin Malugod na pagbati sa iyong bagong iPad. Aking mga magulang Sinabi sa akin kung paano mamahaling mga bagay na mananatili sa Pilipinas. Saan mo bumili ng iyong bagong iPad-dito sa sa States?

    I got my MiFi for P4,000 (more or less $94). Regarding the usage, I go for the prepaid. As I mentioned before, I only use the MiFi when there's no wifi available. The prepaid values are: P50 ($1.17) unlimited use for 1 day, P100 ($2.35) for 2 days, P200 ($4.70). The $ value conversions I gave is more or less. I don't have any idea with the other value as this are the only prepaid I've used so far. Barely that I use the P200 denomination.
    There are other more expensive Huawei MiFi routers. But for practicality purpose, I chose the P4,000.
    Again, I chose MiFi over iPad with 3G because 5 users can use the router at the same time.
    For other inquiries, you can check Smart or Globe for their SIM broadband services.
    I hope my reply helps.

    Thanks quake-I am familiar with mifi devices here in the states, since I own one myself. I was just curious to know rather it held the same concept in the PI-thank you very much for your detailed response. It did help me clarify my questions!

    Regards!

    In addition, there are still dead spots here in the PI and mostly those area that are from the city or places that doesn't have 3G at all. Better check with the providers if they offer 3G on certain locations.
    Out of topic, I saw a MiFi router at Wallmart last December in the US. Question, does that MiFi needs a SIM to operate? Is it locked to work only in the US? I forgot to ask and check the product.

    The one I bought from Walmart is a virgin mobile mifi that connects to 5 devices. No sim card-it runs with either the verizon or the AT&T carrier depending on which unit you get. Works great for me-also works in the car.

    I knew it! That wouldn't work here. A SIM card from providers here in the PI is needed for the MiFi to work. Same, 5 devices as well. Thanks Carol.
