Hi, i wanted to ask if anyone here has had to internationally travel with their iPad and which was more convenient for your experience: a wifi-only or cellular model? I bought the iPad Air (32 GB, Space Gray, wifi only) in November 2013 to replace my 2008 MacBook Pro (which is on it's last leg) only cause of the Air's large screen and keyboard compared to those of the Mini. Although it's portable, I feel like it's really only portable enough to carry around my apartment. I've taken it on a few trips to San Jose and Houston (I live in Florida) and it fit nicely in my purse but now I'm starting to feel like it may be too big to constantly carry it around on vacations. Recently I got the craze to try out the iPad Mini with Retina which I bought (32 GB, White and Silver, wifi only) and I absolutely love it. It has a much nicer form factor and the screen feels softer to the touch than the iPad Air. My questions are: I want these iPads to last me for the next 5+ years and I know in this time, I would also like to travel internationally. Since I'm within my 14-day trial period, I'm considering trading the wifi-only Mini with Retina for a Mini Retina + Cellular so I have the option of being connected if I'm to travel internationally (using the foreign country's local carrier's nanoSIM cards). It's astounding how in this day and age, there still isn't a lot of free wifi in airports and hotels (A hotel in Hawaii offered wifi but for 30$ a day). If I was to get a cellular iPad Mini and travel internationally (in my case, outside the US), it would be cheaper to use the local carriers but would it be worth it or are data plans still expensive in continents like Europe and Asia compared to that of the US. Do most countries in these places offer LTE, and if not, are they up-to-date in selling nanoSIM cards so they fit in the latest iPad's sim-tray? Also, as far as using the latest cellular iPads within the US , I have heard that (for the most part) any US carrier's nanoSIM card will work regardless of buying the AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile model. Is this true? If getting a cellular iPad is a good idea and if I want to pay as I go and not subscribe to a monthly data service, which is the safer carrier to choose? Would a TMobile nanoSIM card work on an "AT&T model" iPad? I heard the AT&T iPad is more flexible. Thank you very much! PS- I know tethering an iPad to my phone (iPhone 4S) is another way to go but I get no reception on my phone when I'm outside the US since I use Virgin Mobile and it's not factory unlocked. I think it uses CDMA although there is a sim tray but I don't think putting another carrier (a US carrier or a non-US carrier)'s SIM card would work.
