Hi, Don't know what to do with this and appreciate your help. I want to buy an IPAD2. I live 6 months a year in US and 6 months in Ireland. Will also be traveling in Europe and need the email and skype connections there as well. My carrier in the US for my Iphone 4S is Verizon. I place the account on suspend in US while gone to avoid excessive roaming/data charges. I cannot get the Iphone unlocked in Ireland as they said 'jailbreak' is not available. If I buy IPAD2 in US, i assume it needs to be connected to a network? (Sorry for the ignorant question) If i buy in Ireland, the same thing? If I could get pay as you go rather than a contract in Ireland, it would be best. Will I have to buy 1 for each country? Any advice is very much appreciated. Thank you.
