    We spent about $800 in used two used iPad 3Gs, one Verizon, and one AT&T, with the Verizon one being white, and the AT&T being black. Both are under AppleCare until May 2013, and have a month of free service from the seller.

    Did we get a good deal on this? If I were to go for "the New iPad" it would have costed us around $1,200 or $1,300 for having one with 3G/4G.

    Now why one AT&T and one Verizon? Simple, my business partner/friend has Verizon as a cell phone service, so it was easy to have him add that to his account, and he "prefers having coverage." whereas I am content with AT&T's service, and find it pretty fast for what I need to use it for.

    Only the white one came with a box however.

    Monthly bills will be $20 for the white Verizon one, and $30 for the black AT&T one.

    If you are happy with your purchase then it is a good price. In terms of price as in 'market value' check your local craigslist to see how much people are selling the same ipad for.

    $800 is a great deal. On Apple's refurbished site they sell for $479 each.

    Avg. deal on a pair, you can flip them for $450 easily enough.

    Reasonable deal, esp. since both have the extra radio.

    Decent deal for 3G units with warranty into 2013.

    Just curious -- why wouldn't you ask this question before paying instead of after? I don't understand forking over $800 when you don't know if it's a fair deal or not. Not trying to be critical, I just don't understand. :confused:

    What's "about $800"?

    If you paid $800 exactly, thats a pretty average/decent deal since they're only base 16GB + 3G. If you paid $850+, which can also be considered "about $800" then not so much.

    Now if you paid $750, you see where this is going? :)

    While I agree his response was a bit harsh. This is a question you ask BEFORE you make the transaction, and not after!

    Don't want to make you feel bad but I just received my used 64GB 3G (Verizon) white ipad 2 yesterday (bought on eBay); cost me $525 (incl. $14.95 shipping).

    That's about what folks are paying on eBay for 64GB 3G iPads (I researched it for a few days before actually bidding).
