    Hey guys ... I just wanted to know, based on your experience so far with your iPad ... IF a 250 mb plan is enough just for reading my emails( not downloading files), chating on msn (with beejive), Twitter.

    The rest internet usage would be Wi-Fi for me.

    Would I Bust the plan based on your experience with the usage that I mentioned above ?

    I just dont know how much "mb" that kind of usage requires !!

    Thanks for helping me out guys :)

    You should be fine with 250MB with that usage.

    Just a warning. I was traveling and subscribed to the 250 3G service.
    Then I got back to home base and was using WiFi exclusively.

    Got a message from At&t that my subscription was about to expire-i.e. 30 days. I did not read the fine print! I thought it would end so I did nothing.

    The subscription then auto renewed so I got charged for another 30 days when I did not need it. My fault but watch out for this.

    I figured out too late that you must cancel it manually or it will auto renew!

    You should be fine w 250mb. I've been using my 3G a lot. My wife was even watching you tube in cars while we are on the road. So far I have only used 400 mb in the last 24 days.
