    Well, my children finally convinced me to get an iPad, so I received my 16GB iPad3 yesterday:thumbs: I guess I am an "Apple seed":D

    I have upgraded the software, and am now keen to set it up.

    I think this forum will help me a huge amount, and I'm looking forward to participating.

    If you want to purely use your WiFi iPad as a mobile device you must be within the range of a WiFi facility.( a coffee shop etc?) If you have a PC connected to the Internet, you must have a WiFi Router to be able to connect to the Internet with your iPad within the range allowed by that Router.
