    I want to buy an ipad now because I am able to tether with my iphone now. There are few still in the box for sale that are cheaper than the just WiFi versions. I just need to know if I can still use it with out signing up for the 3G?
    Thanks in advance!

    Yes, you can use it without enabling 3G service. My wife has a iPad 16/3G and has never activated 3G nor even setup an AT&T account to use it.

    Yes, you can
    And you can sign up for one month and not the next
    It has a simple interface to manage your usage
