    Whistle is pretty good and listening to a 15 second advertisement isn't bad. Skype works great. You need to purchase credits if you're going to make calls to someone other than a Skype user. I am in Japan for business and calling to my home phone in the US is $0.02 per minute. Cheap enough...

    What size should I get? 16GB, 32 GB, 64GB

    Go 64 GB. I have loaded mine up with music, movies (or myself, my wife, and my child), and recent trip photos, and have about 27 GB of available memory remaining. I am glad that I went with the 64GB 3G model.

    how fast is your 3g

    Unfortunately Tmobile has chosen a different radio band for their 3G service, so best the iPhone can do is EDGE. MyWi is a hack that you can load via Cydia to turn your iPhone into a WiFi hot spot. You'll need to jailbreak your iPhone to install and use it.

    Need Help With Mail

    Time Warner will allow incoming email,, but will ot allow you to send email unless you're in your home network. What I recommend is to setup a Gmail account and forward your Time Warner email to that account. That's what I did and it works great.

    iPad 3G Support Group Thread

    Same here... I had a pending charge that fell off and my debit card available balance increased. I suspect that Apple is just checking to make sure the cards are still "good" for the charge amount as they prepare to ship all the 3G units at one time, but wanted to do it early enough so that the...

    My 14th day on april 30th

    Why take a hit at all? Most places are sold out of the iPad. I bet you could sell your iPad for what you paid if you are willing to ship overseas. Of course, if you don't want to deal with the hassle, taking the $70 hit for restocking is a "clean and easy" transaction (+ the $129 difference...

    Denver Police Make an Arrest in the iPad Pinky Case

    As soon as my iPad arrives on Friday, I'm taking it to get laser etched. I am toying with the idea to join Mobile Me as well, so if someone does steal it, I can track the unit and wipe it virtually.
