    Heyhi all- does anyone think or know of a 3G adapter to be available for our "old" non-3G iPads?

    3G

    I doubt one will come. In my case I tether to my jailbroken iPhone and it works great...

    Maybe a DIY self project once parts start showing up on fleabay. But I can't see anything official.

    You don't really need an adapter you can either tether to your cell phone or get one of those portable hot spot devices.

    That's what I am using and it works very well. My only gripe about it is the battery life which seems to be around 4 or 5 hours.

    My wife and I love our Sprint 3G/4G Overdrive... If you are a two iPad family, this is the only way to go.... We love the option to connect our laptops as well.. a Huge added bonus... I have not had one problem connecting into the 3G network network yet, and had a chance to connect into Sprints 4G in Portland last week.. I cant even tell you how fast 4G is.. It makes my broadband almost look sic....

    Only downside is if you had to sign a 2-year contract. ATT can be canceled at any time.

    I dont recall saying i signed a 2-year contract.. did i accidentally write that.. I dont think so.. I actually picked up a new 3G/4G Overdrive for $50 to my door.. No Contract... Come and go as i please but i dont see that happening anytime soon. BTW- you should be able to pick up the Overdrives for $50-75 bucks, no contracts on eBay.. just keep your eyes out..

    And I did not say you did. I said "if", meaning I was unsure if you had or had not. I also am unsure if a 2-year contract is required to use the service. You go to Sprint's website, and you see "Requires new line or eligible
    upgrade
    with a 2-yr contract".
