    I'm just curious for those who bought the wifi iPad such as myself. I'm over 14 days and going on 17th day as of today and contemplating whether to return my iPad to Best Buy and take the restocking fee and get a ipad 3G later on. I do have an iPhone that can tether using MyWi and very happy with it. My only worries is when the iPhone 4G release maybe in June, I don't know if MyWi will still be available. Anybody can enlighten me on my decision. What would you do if you are in my situation? Thanks!

    Well if you don't mind jailbreaking your phone then that's the way to go. It's definitely the cheaper way to go. Don't worry about the 4G, they will jailbreak that one too, trust me. In my case I don't want to deal with any of that do I chose the 3G from day one.

    Keeping my wifi model. Can't see the value in paying a extra $129 for 3G model, when I can tether just fine, and save myself the $30 a month. I know some do not mind paying extra or maybe do not have a data plan on their current phone.

    From the sounds of it, Apple may have quite a few 'refurbished' Wi-Fi iPads to sell in May!

    Regarding June and release of 4.0...... I have a jail broke iphone, and mywi. I do not plan to update until I am sure it is jail broken. And even if it never is, I still won't update. I really don't use my iPhone for much anymore except as a phone. The iPad is so much easier for me to use. The new features are great, but I get along just fine without them....

    I was under the impression that for computer products Best Buy's policy was 14 days. During that 14 days you could return the product but it would subject to a restocking fee. Sounds like you are outside the return/exchange window.

    I just confirmed this buy going to BB's website and looking up their return policy.

    I guess I'm an old duck - my iPhone, Kindle and MacAir are all toast, as soon as I get my iPad. When OS4 is released, the iPad will meet all of my travel needs - memos, light spreadsheets, presentations (even via a projector), movies, music, photos, E-mail, and Skype. It's the prefect solution for me - I NEVER text, use Facebook, etc - and having to periodically check E-mail is just fine.

    The MacAir never really hit the mark for me, and being able to go back to my cheap T-mobile GSM phone for all my international travel will do wonders for my budget. Using a netbook is a total waste of money, and I'm excited that this will be the enterprise device for my entire team.

    I'll wager that I'm not the only one looking forward to this consolidation...

    Thanks for the reply my fella iPadster users. One of my co-worker told me about the 45 days return policy but there is fine print. In order to be eligible for this policy customer has to spend at least 2,500 a year. I guess it is still better than nothing at all.

    I had two Kindles...one is mine, the other is the Mrs.' I've already sold mine and when the iPad arrives and we see that L. is able to use it to help overcome her disability (as she does with the Kindle) I'll use that for all her Amazon books. I have the Kindle app ready to sync as soon as the Ipad arrives

    Look for them to phase out the WiFi only model in the next revision. Doesn't make sense for them to have 6 models.

    I'm keeping the WiFi model. I have no need for a cell connection for the use I have for it. If I ever need data, I can get a MyFi card or the like and use it for all my devices.
