    I have the 3G Model iPad.

    I choose NOT to pay for the Monthly Service.

    If I am out in the country it wouldn't work anyway - Right?

    If I am in the city, there are enough Free access locations that I don't need the service.

    I pay 35 dollars a month for 5 GB of data via 3G... It's great. I have access to the web pretty well everywhere I go, including driving down the highway in my vehicle. That's EXACTLY what I got the iPad for... Having the web on demand wherever I normally go.. No need to sniff around for free WiFi spots.

    Just today, I was driving around in my car and streaming live audio off the net to my car stereo using the TuneIn radio app.

    I got the ATT Unlimited and have paid every month for it. I love the anywhere/anytime access. I use it for streaming audio and MotionX GPS all the time.

    I got the wifi version. When there is no wifi available I connect to the 3G network from my Droid rooted phone.

    1) You don't have to pay for the monthly service every month, which is one of the benefits of the iPad. If you're spending an extended period away from free wi-fi, you can pay $15 and no worry about it, then drop the service when you get back.

    2) It can work out of the country. Some countries let you sign up for other services, some you buy a sim card to use the service and pre-pay an amount.

    I have 3G capability in case I find I need it...so far no need, and looking for a way out of my iPhone..because when I seem to need 3G, it's not available or so weak it's unusable! Cannot wait to get back to verizon for phone!

    I pay $15 to AT&T per month. When I travel I turn it on. When I am home I use wifi and I turn AT&T off. That works well very well.

    I havnt used it this month. But I do pay monthly. I too like the instant access.

    Sniffing for free wifi is more of a pain than anything. If Internet or power goes out, I still have Internet.

    I don't need to drain my phones battery by tethering. No need to carry another stupid mifi device.

    iPad is an Internet machine. So why limit it??
