    If I got an iPad2 with AT&T or Verizon feature, can it operate as a mini hotspot so I can connect to the internet thru it from other wireless devices?

    I believe the IPhone4 does that with ios4.3, right?

    Also, can you get an iPad2 dataplan without a contract from either ATT or verizon and instead just pay month to month?

    No. Unfortunately, that is an iPhone-only feature.

    No, the iPad cannot act as a Hotspot on either network.

    Yes - you can get month-to-month data contract from both Verizon and ATT
