    I just got an email, called, and got a free 30 days of 3G plan. Anyone else?

    Is it worth getting the 3g version over the wifi. I was thinking of tethering my android to use it but im moving overseas for school next year so i just think taking back my ipad and getting the 3g version would be better.. What do you think since you have the 3g

    3G is not locked to ATT, and therefore should work with overseas data sim cards/plans (better to get ATT vs Verizon for this reason), according to one thing I had read.

    3G has GPS (which also can come in handy).

    Ther eis a promotion right now. Anyone can get this. I believe it is for the postpaid plans, but not the prepaid ones.

    This is good to know. I just picked up a really cheap iPad 1 with 3G.

    I just set up the 3G on my AT&T model and saw no option for postpaid, nor the free month they advertise on their site. So how do I go about finding how to sign up for the post paid plan?

    You have to call customer service or visit a store (see here). This is also true for deactivating it (which is why I will stay with the prepaid option, since I like to be able to simply turn it on and off in the settings).

    And yes, the free month is available to everyone who signs up for the 2GB postpaid plan, see here.

    Ah, that's too much trouble. I'll just stick with the prepaid plan. Thanks for the info!

    I personally have GOT to have 3g

    Some here claim they don't need 3g because Wifi is usually everywhere they are.

    In my case, it isn't. I travel around my city daily and rarely if ever will I find Wifi in most places AND I need a connection most of the time.

    So, it is mandatory for me.
