    Basically ATT are a bunch of scam artists and are now charging $25 a month for 2gb of service and $10 for each additional GB. How can you hack to get around the 3g service? the only option I found was to tether my blackberry internet service and use that like a 3g hotspot. Any other suggestions or ways to avoid paying for this ridiculous service???

    Hate ATT!!

    What's wrong with tethering as a solution? I use WMWifirouter on my Sprint Treo Pro with my iPad and it works like a charm. Sure it's not as fast as a good wifi connection, but it certainly works in a pinch. I'm not sure what kind of a solution you're hoping to achieve...

    Yeah I'm confused too. What do you plan on doing to use more than 2gb of data a month anyway?

    I had a sprint mifi that was 60 bucks a month. Batter was only a few hours, another device to carry around, and another thing to charge. Plus more than double the price. Tethering.. Kill my iPhone faster I'm sure because of the constant data going through it. I need my phone to talk/email.

    It's all about what you need and what you can afford. If I knew I couldn't afford the 3G iPad I wouldn't have bought it.

    You could try tmobiles edge, but that's sloooooow

    for some 2gb isn't enough. I use to work in a Production company and with the promotion video and stuff I had to view on the go, it went average of 4gb a month.

    I have 4 email accounts which use a ton of data and also I use it for netflix and hulu so yes I will go over 2gb. I can afford the ipad and the service but it is the principal that I can't even have the option to purchase the unlimited plan. I have to pay extra for going over 2gb. It is just nonsense that these companies dictate everything and give us no options because they monopolize the market.

    I agree . That's my one complaint bout the iPad and apple. Steve jobs is almost like a neo Nazi of sorts :p, the restrictions are bit much and AT&T is a scam, the 250mb data plan is bs. Way too little data.

    So, don't buy from Apple. Nobody is forcing you to buy anything you don't want. It's not a monopoly because you have options other than Apple. You don't like AT&T, don't use the service.
