As promised in a couple threads that asked about would 250MB be enough for the iPad 3G, I have started this thread to let you all know my real world experience with 250MB! Don't see this as a daily posting thing, unless I comment on a recent reply. Hopefully over the next 30 days or 250MB - which ever comes first , members here on the MR might get a better idea as to whether to go for the $15 plan or the $30 plan. And so will I. A little about how I intend to use the 3G aspect of the iPad. Mostly at work during my lunch breaks. We have no wifi at work. Bit of a news hound - so I generally read the USToday (App), NYT Editors Choice (App), BBC News (App), Fox News (web), and WTOP News (web). So 3G will used during my lunch breaks when I don't want to read the books I have on the iPad. Well just activated my iPad 3G yesterday. Was home with wifi so turned the 3G off. Today was the first day with the 3G being used. Did like 5 to 7 minutes with the GPS and Google Maps with photo view. The rest of it was a 30 minute lunch break checking USToday, Fluent News, and a quick check of Mail, Google Mail via Safari. Left the 3G just as a test of fetching emails through out the day. Tomorrow will be the first real test of how I see my 3G usage going. Only turning on the 3G when I can't get a wifi signal So here it is: Day 1 (May 3rd) - 0 (Was wifi all day at home) Day 2 (May 4th) - Sent: 1.2MB Received: 15.5MB Notes: As mentioned above just had to try out the GPS with Google Maps for a little while this morning on my drive in to work. Used during a stretch that I knew I would hit some stop lights to check out the accuracy and be able to exit the Google Map app safely. As mentioned in another thread this seems to be a hog on 3G data.
