    No, the ATT version is the only one with a slot for a gsm card. Unfortunately you got the wrong version.

    Not a tip ... but a caution. Ok, call it a "cautionary tip'.

    If you use "Penultimate" .. and enable "wrist protection" ... it will not work ... IF, under the main iPad settings has the following option enabled .... "Settings->Accessibility->Zoom". You should disable that Zoom option. Default is "OFF" and I had turned it on because it allowed me much greater zoom control ... but that messed up my Penultimate app !

    How to synchronize files automatically between Goodreader and a folder on your PC/Mac over wifi, but without internet access.

    1) Setting up goodreader as a network drive (this will make the goodreader folder appear as a hard drive on your computer).

    On Windows 7, this can be done as followed. (Instead of browsing to the folder, add the IP address Goodreader shows when you open Wifi-Transfer)
    www.itechtalk.com/thread3673.html
    On Mac, instructions can be found here:
    www.goodreader.net/gr-man-tr-wifi-mac.html

    At this stage the goodreader network drive can be used pretty much as a thumb drive, so you can copy/cut/move folders/files to your liking.

    For syncing, programs such as Allway Sync can be used.
    For setting up Allway Sync:
    1) Open it, then Add new Job (Ctrl+N)
    2) On the left half browse to a document folder (all documents placed in that folder will synchronize onto the iPad)
    3) On the right half browse to the goodreader network drive

    Now, whenever you start Wifi-Transfer in Goodreader and run Allway Sync, you only have to press Synchronize and all data between the two folders is synchronized.

    This is pretty much a copy of the instructions I had posted in another thread.

    I am travelling to Europe, Germany, Prague, Budapest, Swiss, Italy, London, Paris, Oslo and Stokholm. What brand of SIM would fit me best? Which one is more unexpensive? Do this one work properly in all those countries or do I need more than one? Where is it better to buy it? I am buying an Ipad 2 Wi-Fi + 3D.

    Thanks
    Maru

    You are probably better off asking that question here: PrePaidGSM.net Forum

    The forum members there are quite familiar with global GSM providers.

    If you are in apps without zoom (i.e. iPF), you can select text quickly:
    Start by having the two finger tips touch each other and then move both fingers in a horizontal movement away from each other.

    For some reason it only works in edit mode, but it is super fast and more accurate than the press'n'hold-select method.
