    Could there be a problem with overheating? The mifis run really hot.

    Pretty cool. Although rumor has it that Verizon ipads are supposed to be released around the same time the Verizon iphone lands.

    I'm not from the states, but this really confuses me as over here in the UK if I wanted to change provider all I would have to do is swap sim card(I have O2-UK and Orange-UK sims). Did he do this so he could share the mifi to other devices as well? :confused::confused:

    The iPad's radio chipset is unable to connect to Verizon (or Sprint). By using a MiFi, it now has a compatible chipset.

    Maybe this is a way for the early wifi ipad adopters to get 3G in their devices...

    I think this hack is pointless, why not just connect via wifi to the mifi?
