Hello, I am new to the board and the Apple world and this is my first post. I come from a PC background so go easy on me. Just purchased an IPad 2 for my wife and have a couple of questions: 1. Is there a way to monitor how much data you are downloading and uploading when NOT working in a 3G environment? 2. We will probably only use the 3G when traveling so will only buy for when we are on the road. Will use WI-FI, at home, otherwise. When you have a 3G account, can you turn off that feature? A case would be when we are on the road but are using a WI-FI hotspot and don't need the 3G service. If we can do this, how? I have learned a lot from reading the posts but I can tell I still have a long way to go. Thanks, in advance, to anyone who will reply.
