    Paying for the 3G that is. Cause to me, having a wifi only ipad is kinda pointless and dumb. Ipad is something most people would want to bring with them everywhere, so with a wifi only you have to always rely on a wifi network to connect whereas 3G you always have a connection no matter where you are. Glad I got the 3G.

    I want to hear from you 3G owners how you found it so far? Any of you regret it and find you dont use 3G much?

    I have both and wouldn't have it any other way. I just need to be able to access the internet on a dime and not worry about it.

    True, and thats why i think getting a wifi only ipad is dumb. Its like buying a wifi only iphone or blackberry. Doesnt make any sense. Could you image if all of us blackberry and iphone users had to rely on wifi networks 100% of the time?

    I just see the wifi only ipads really limited and kind of defeats the purpose of even bringing it out with you. Unless you dont and just use it at home then thats different. But I didnt pay almost $700 to use the ipad only in my house or coffee shop or someone elses house - you get the point. With 3G you can use it in your car parked in the middle of nowhere, you can use it in the park during summer time, you can use it in the woods when you go hiking!

    Yes, you have a point but I have an iPhone for that and my wifi iPad for reading and listening to music when outside.

    Exactly! I got the the 64, wifi and 3G and never looked back. I know me and I would have regretted if I had gotten anything less.

    Saying that 'buying ipad wifi only is dumb' is a dumb statement itself.


    Buying ipad wifi only is actually smart, you can buy a wifi only ipad AND a mifi device for LESS that the cost of an ipad 3g. And with a mifi device u can hook it up to multiple devices, proves to be more cost effective that an ipad 3g.


    Do some research before making ridiculous statements next time OP.

    Spoiled brat. Only excepting the best :p

    Btw. I also went for the 3G version on iPad 1 & 2, as it is the easiest way to get Internet and when I am abroad, it is more convenient to get an iPad sim prepaid, then to change the phone's sim to a new number.
