    Who Here That Owns An iPad Will Buy The iPad Mini?

    When you're grandfathered in to an unlimited AT&T data plan you cannot use *that plan to create a "personal hotspot" or use FaceTime over cellular. I have a parent in a care facility and a disabled adult daughter. I burn through data like nobody's business. The mini just gave me more options...

    Who Here That Owns An iPad Will Buy The iPad Mini?

    I'm on my 2nd iPad mini. The original's battery neglected to hold a charge. Although I'm grandfathered in to unlimited data (AT&T) I decided not to use that plan with the mini. Instead, I cancelled the plan I had for my laptop connect card - and use the mini's "Personal Hotspot" feature (with...

    Proud owner of an iPad mini

    <<<<<<<<<< I'm confused by your statement that there is no Siri on iPad3 because that was one of the upgrades that came with iOS6 in September (timing of iOS6) - at least it is in the states, because I use it all the time. Here's a link that includes how you activate it...

    iPad Mini Doesn’t Cut It For Images

    Much better to look at? or operate? I had no qualms with the view, just with using the browser.

    iPad Mini Doesn’t Cut It For Images

    Can't compare the Kindle Fire HD with a mini, because I only own the original Kindle Fire. While I couldn't fault the screen for its display, operating it by its touchscreen made me want to throw it across the room. I couldn't WAIT til the mini was announced. Sure I wanted the Retina screen...

    Who Here That Owns An iPad Will Buy The iPad Mini?

    I have one grandfathered account and I can move (transfer) that account between the (now) 5 iPads my family owns, without ever touching a SIM card. On the iPad I want to use the grandfathered data plan on, I simply go into that iPad's cellular settings and choose the "transfer service from...

    Who Here That Owns An iPad Will Buy The iPad Mini?

    There is no physical movement of SIM card necessary to transfer service from one iPad to another. As long as the iPad you are "activating" has its OWN SIM card, you can transfer service (or move your grandfathered plan) TO that iPad simply by choosing the "Transfer Service From Another iPad"...

    Who Here That Owns An iPad Will Buy The iPad Mini?

    Sorry for the double-posting but I didn't make it clear in another post that AT&T sanctions moving your data plans between the iPads you own. No need to switch out SIM cards. I was cautioned to be certain not to inadvertently CANCEL a grandfathered plan (??!!) but told that no matter what...

    iPad Mini Doesn’t Cut It For Images

    I don't doubt your photography based expertise, but I question the (seemingly) accusation that Apple *intentionally held back on a product just to make a bigger profit. If your opinion of Apple is indeed that low, why plan on making any future purchases from them?!

    iPad Mini Doesn’t Cut It For Images

    I concur about the images on the mini do indeed look better to me than on my iPad2. For whatever reason I had forgotten to make that comparison. I use iPad3 the most, so I was feeling a bit disappointed but your post set me *straight :)

    SMS Messages

    There are quite a few apps that will assign your iPad a phone number so it can send/receive SMS and in many cases, act as a phone as well. A stand alone phone app that I like because it allows you to use it as Google Voice forwarding number is called "Whistle". Used to be completely free but...

    Printing to a Dell 1350cnw

    Darn :( You may have already considered this, and there may be a better program/app to get it done, but I use one called "Print and Share" to print with my Dell wirelessly from my iDevices. https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/print-n-share/id301656026?mt=8

    Who Here That Owns An iPad Will Buy The iPad Mini?

    Got the iPad Mini on Monday... I have to say that I was surprised at how much the screen resolution bothers me. It's perfect for me in every other way. Especially so, since AT&T officially allows one to transfer their data plan(s) between iPads without penalty. This includes those...

    Vaja Cases Is Making a Mini Case

    LOVE Vaja cases. I have found them at a discount after paying full price for a custom MacBookAir case. I have a White Leather one I no longer use for an iPad1 if anyone's interested (like new).
