Which version are those who are getting the iPad Pro 9.7 the wifi or LTE version
I've always gone with Wifi but looking at this post: $10 for 5GB for 5 months, hmm, tempting?

I was just going to post a similar thread, you beat me to it john
[doublepost=1458769804][/doublepost]Is anyone using a Cellular iPad with either this plan or something similar? Where you leave it off most of the time, unless you use it and not charged for it on a monthly basis?

What about iPad Pro 12.9? Wifi Only or Cellular?
I got a 128GB Wifi Only from bestbuy for $865 n, but I am thinking about returning it to bestbuy then purchase a Cellular from Bhphoto for $949 without tax.

Is Cellular necessary for iPad Pro 12.9?
I still have my iPad Air 2 128GB LTE.

Eh, iPad is more of a 'at home' device for me. WiFi is fine. For times I take it out and about, and can't find WiFi, hotspotting my phone is fine

All my iPads have been cellular until the iPad Pro 12.9 .... I chose wifi only for this as it is mostly for home use and I still have 2 cellular iPads for outside use. But, if the iPad Pro was my only iPad would definitely be cellular.

Every single iPad I've purchased has been with 3G/LTE. It's something that goes everywhere with me, especially traveling, and replaces a laptop on trips (unless it's a work trip). To me it's worth the extra $129.

The past few years I just use the T-Mobile free 200mb for life plan, that way I have access when I need it on the road. If I need more for a trip, I can purchase it.

It's handy to have if you travel with an iPad. If it's your stay-at-home device, you could probably skip it.

This is what I do too. I always have a cellular connection that's free, and if nothing else, permits me to find the iPad with Find My IPhone. I only have to buy extra data when I go on a trip. The cellular version also comes with GPS so the Maps app is much more useful.

It's not just about internet access though. The Wi-Fi Plus Cellular models also include GPS hardware which helps a lot in location services when out and about.

Same here, I don't take my iPad out any about hardly at all, and if I do, I can use my phone as a hotspot. Went with the Wi-Fi model.

That's valid. Not important to myself however, as again, it's more a 'at home' device for me.

Would be cool if the iPhone hotspot fed the iPad its GPS data for location services though.

Wifi only depends on electricity. When a storm knock you power out, it is certainly a good thing to have a battery operated device with LTE that can connect to the outside world and news in your area.
