    So after so much debate in my head, I decided to pick up a 3G 64gb today at my local best buy who miraculously had them in stock, and then promptly sold my wifi on Amazon. Luckily it sold within 2 hours and is already on it's way to it's new owner. I am a big Netflix and Slingbox guy and am always on the road, so I wanted the unlimited plan just in case.....at least for now. I do have a verizon mifi, which I get reimbursed for through work, but even the 5 gb limit is hard to stick to depending on how much I'm on the road. Just a couple weeks ago I streamed the UFC fight and it was 3gb alone. So now I have to limit my use of my mifi for the remaining month.

    I will informa everyone though, as of 6:45pm central time, I was still able to select the unlimited plan.

    If you don't mind my asking - which wifi model did you have and how much were you able to get for it?

    I just listed my husband's 64gb wifi ipad on eBay this afternoon but I'm wondering if it makes more sense to list it on amazon instead?

    I sold it for 699 as I paid for it, many people on amazon are trying to get 800+ for it, but I wanted to pretty much break even. I bought my iPad a cole weeks after launch day, got lots of use out of it, and in the end, lost maybe $50 after amazon commissions....I would recommend amazon over eBay any day...

    It does now but didn't when the application first came out.

    I have my auction starting at $640 but no bids yet. I'm sure I'll see something in the next couple of days. If not, I'll move the listing to amazon and cancel with ebay.

    My husband and I both got ours on launch day but we're both extremely meticulous about our electronics so it's in perfect condition. We both have the apple case and neither of us have an issue with the case getting dirty because we're so careful with our ipads. Whoever ends up getting my husband's ipad will get a great deal.

    Thanks for the tips on Amazon! I'm a buyer, not a seller!!
