    ....and reordered the 3G version.

    I decided I wanted the proper GPS abilities, even if I don't use much of the actual 3G data connection.

    I've delayed getting my ipad but hopefully I'll be happier once it arrives!

    First of all I would like to say hi to all forum members I just signed up today. Weird I cannot post replies within the ipf application - the onscreen keyboard just doesn't pop u when I try to type in the message.

    Well to the subject , I only find the 3G option a must if you do not own a powerful 3G device already ... I say powerful for fast Internet connection otherwise any other device would do. I already owned a samsung galaxy s smartphone prior to purchasing my iPad 2 so it was absolutely useless to pay the extra 500$ to get the 32gb with 3G, this is the difference price tag here. I got my iPad 2 32gb wifi for 1100$ ..

    Just my opinion and preference.

    You definitely overpaid for yours then because the most expensive iPad with 3G is 829, did you get it off eBay?

    In the iPF app,, there is a Lock symbol at the bottom, saying Login. Log in with your credentials and you should be able to reply to threads.

    Keep in mind, that when browsing a thread, you have to click on the arrow in the top right corner to select Reply to this thread.

    I do have an iPhone so have 3G and GPS on that. Ironically that's part of why I've upgraded to ipad since I'm used to them and didn't want to feel disappointed with the new device.

    One of the things I regularly use my iPhone for is GPS/mapping so I'm looking forward to having that all on a big screen!

    I bought the 64 gig 3G version just so I would have all the choices. I don't pay for 3G service, but I do make use of the GPS occasionally.

    I have a DroidX with excellent GPS, but I still wanted the iPad to have the GPS capability. I can tether the iPad to the phone with free wireless tether for unlimited Internet access and then use the GPS built into the ipad2.

    I may not always have the phone and if I get rid of it, iPad will still have the capability of connecting using 3G.

    Does the gps work without a data sub? I have a 64GB 3G white for about $950 with taxes. From the Apple store.

    Yes it does. It works great. In fact I have data turned off on mine 3G and never even signed up for a data plan and it works perfectly. Have sued it with mapping programs and for geocaching.
