    If I were to buy a MBP is there a date plan that can be purchased from verizon or AT&T if I want to be on the net where wi-fi isn't available?
    If so, how much is it and how does it work?
    Sorry for the run on sentence.

    you can buy a usb card from any carrier you want, or if you use a modern smartphone, just tether

    You would have to get a USB dongle from whichever provider you like.

    Cost of the card is usually $0-50 after a rebates if you sign a 2 year contract; if you don't sign a contract, then the card will most likely be $150-250; then you have to pay a monthly charge on top of that.

    Usually any of the brands are good. I like Sierra Wireless… just pick the provider you want.

    And yes you can tether with your iPhone 4 if you have AT&T and you pay the $20 extra fee. Personally I think that's a sham.

    Sure, but I can't assume everyone wants to jailbreak.
