    What kind of uses do you expect to get from it?

    ive got the wifi 16gb and i use it for mostly home, but i will occasionally go to the local subway and browse there. I use mostly my iPhone for the 3G stuff. I'm always on the go and dont see it worth much paying even $15 extra a month. I'd love it if i could tether that new iPhone with my iPad, but I see no future on that one. :(

    Totally worth it! I use mine every day, and its light enough that you can carry it with you to find other uses for it.

    nah, never into the Android, although my sis loves hers. I just can't part with the iPhone. It's just smooth with all my setups. :p

    Apple released tethering in 3.0. Your issue is with AT&T. But that's not an issue anymore either, because you'll be able to add tethering to the $25 a month 2 GB plan for an extra $20. This does mean you'd have to give up an unlimited plan if you have one though.

    Well if you want a mobile hotspot you can just JB and MyWi. No reason to give up unlimited data on your iphone and no reason to pay other fees , like tethering fee on the phone or data on an iPad....screw AT&T

    I just returned my 3G and I'm back to WiFi ipad. No restocking fees either , told them I wasn't happy with data changes on AT&T.

    MyWi !!! I love it. Works great and I always have power near by so drain on my phone isn't a big deal :cool:

    It won't take long for i4 to be JB.

    Oh yeah , is WiFi worth it ? ....... Y E S !!!

    I got the wifi only and love it...although I think doubling your capacity is worth 100 bucks if that's am option.

    At this point I think you're still lucky to get ahold of one period, much less at a discount.
