Hello: Glad to join the Apple Team. I had an original ipad and just upgraded to the new one. I must say it is a drastic improvement and I LOVE it. I do not have a Iphone yet, I have a droid still. The reason is if I upgrade my phone through Verizon they will discontinue my "grandfathered" status and I will no longer have unlimited data. I can buy an Iphone out right but have not budgeted it for that as yet. I am glad there is a forum because I am learning all of the features and how it can help with my business.
