    Hello All, well here I am threatened with being given something called an I-pad for Xmas!! and knowing absolutely nothing about the subject. My one big question is 'How does an I-pad connect to the internet when there is no computer or broadband connection available in our house?' HELP !! :confused:

    You will need wifi or have a device that is 3G enabled.

    Hello MoonlitSonata thank you for taking the time to reply so quickly. Would you please define 'a device that is 3G enabled'?

    Thank you for the speed again. Does this mean that I will have to open a paying account of some sort?

    if you want to activate a data plan on a WiFi + 3G/LTE iPad, you will have to contact a cellular provider and arrange to sign up for and pay for the data plan you choose.
