    O dear!
    The London Evening Standard has written a gloomy article in the Tuesday edition 15 June saying in a nutshell I PAD OWNERS taking their IPADS ON HOLIDAY will be unable to connect their I PADS while on holiday in Europe whilst using the3g Network due to European legal requirments to send customers a text message when they enter a foreign country to warn them of the increased cost of using a mobile phone overseas. 02 for example doesnt allow for roaming as the sim card isnt capable of allowing for roaming overseas.
    A VERY SORRY STATE OF AFFAIRS.
    Will my IPAD work for ALL of the above using the free WIFI available at the hotel?
    Answers please...
    Thanks

    Wifi connection is available in most countries restaurants public places hotels etc so it is really not a major problem using 3G maybe unless you purchase a prepaid sim for that country col

    WiFi is usually available, however, FREE WiFi usually isn't.
