    Here's the thing I'm so glad you told me about TextFree for......You don't need a carrier to communicate ! Iwas with friends using dada phones before I got my iPad. They were pirating wifi walking down the street! They told me they wished they hadn't signed contracts because all they do is text and don't need all the phone services. I have not needed to pirate wifi myself.....does anyone do it for iPad?

    Also......had to take a MacBook pro to MacDoctor today. I did get a 3G enabled iPad but waited to choose a carrier....he reiterated that I didn't need one telling me what I had seen friends do was the way to get around it.Anyone have any ideas about this?

    If you can hack your phone to turn it into a wifi hotspot then you would not need the AT&T carrier on your ipad.

    You gotta be kidding.

    That's like being offered a free cellphone then saying it's not so free because people who call you have to pay for their calls.

    Try the Chikka client (you can download it at the AppStore). Not really sure if it works everywhere since I've only tried using it around Asia. You have to register for an account but after that, it's free to use.
