Hi everyone. My name is Vickie and I have one of the original 64gb wifi iPads. My husband got me a new iMac for Christmas (an IOU) but I would have had to rearrange my workroom so drastically that I asked him if I could buy an iPad instead and it has really come in handy. I babysit my new grandson every other week for 3 days at a time and I can keep up with email and other activities without having to lug around the iBook. My kids have a wireless network, I have one set up at home and even have one set up at my Dad's (he's 80-it's for my use only!!) so not having the 3G model hasn't been a problem. I have downloaded an app on my Android phone that is supposed to allow me to tether without shelling out another $20 to Verizon but haven't had a chance to try it out yet. Looking forward to learning more about this nifty gadget!
