I love my launch day 3G. It has already been invaluable to me on many occasions particularly during power outages (common in Miami during rainy/hurricane season) and especially when the static discharge from a rogue lightening strike fried my wireless router (just the router mind you, weird). Having uninterrupted internet access is crucial for me since a work out of my home managing my finances. Fortunately I live in an area where ATT signal is very strong and reasonably fast. I would recommend the 3G for anyone living in any area prone to natural disasters. It's a great addition to any emergency kit. I know that I could probably get away with doing this from my smartphone but the combination of screen size convenience and battery life just doesn't exist in the smartphone world yet.
