    Just needed a little clarification.

    When I go to setup the 3g model iPad, could I just have it setup from the WiFi backup and then re-name the 3g iPad and continue customize it?

    Will magazines and other related files that I have already installed on the WiFi model transfer over.

    Or should I just install as new iPad and re-download material again?

    My sincerest apologizes if this has already been hashed out. Thanks for your help in advance.

    By the way I had a chance to take my WiFi iPad on a business trip this last week and it was great having this device with me. I watched as hundreds of laptop users scurried for wall outlets at the airports to ensure they were charged before their flights. I simply used my iPad knowing that I had enough power to read magazines, newspapers, check email, browse the web and not worry if I would still have enough power left to watch two movies and do some other work during my 6 hour flight. To top it off the ease of using this device without the weight of a laptop was welcoming. One word came to mind on this trip, FREEDOM.

    Just give the backup a shot and see how it goes. Worst case scenario, you format and try again, best case, you've saved lots of time.
