    The return period is almost up (tomorrow). what's your plan?

    1. Return tomorrow, wait for 3G
    2. Keep it for now, get 3G then sell Wifi
    3. Totally happy with Wifi, no plan of sell or return for 3G

    I thought 2 weeks was enough time to make up my mind, but I'm still not sure what I do tomorrow.

    I have no problems with the two I purchased. I'm keeping them.

    Maybe you should start a poll eh ?

    You should probably post this as a poll. Just a recommendation.

    Keeping it and giving it to the wife. I pre-ordered my 3G yesterday.

    How many can you return at a time?



    Just kidding. I don't want to return 'em.

    I have the 64gb 3G on preorder and will be giving the WIFI version to my wife when it arrives (she's already trying to hog THIS one). Nothing better than a HIS and HERS iPad! ;-)

    PS - You need to modify your poll for those who are keeping the WIFI *and* getting a 3G.

    I figure i'll stick it out with my iPhone data plan and my WiFi iPad until they release an iPad 4G in a year or two.

    alright poll added. maybe I should have added "wifi goes to spouse/family when 3G arrives" but probably that's included to the option 2 since you as an individual are getting 3G and wifi is going someone else.

    I would not dream of parting with my wifi iPad! Not only because I love it even more than I thought I would, but also because I was driven by more than impatience when I chose the wifi-only: I actually wanted not to have 3G on my iPad, intentionally. There is no reason for me to be unhappy with what I bought. In fact, I am thrilled with it.

    You didn't add a category for those who have and love the WiFi iPad who will also be getting the 3G iPad without selling the first one.....

    No way in heck would I even think of returning my beloved iPad! I love it so much and Wifi is just fine with me.

    I will be gifting my 32 gb WiFi to a lucky ebay bidder (probably non US) as soon as I unbox my 64 gb 3 g:)

    I think I'll be keeping my Wifi iPad for now. When 3G comes out, I consider it again. If I end up picking up 3G at the end of April, then the wifi goes on ebay with below "market" price for quick sell to overseas.

    I'm really undecided too. Don't want to be padless for the next 2 weeks.

    Have the wifi, no 3G for me. I have a Sprint overdrive that can run my iPad on 4G. No sense limiting it to only 3G speed.

    100% happy with the wifi, in fact I think if both versions had been released at the same time and I had the 3G i would likely be thinking of returning it FOR the wifi version.

    I'm in a wifi area most of the time, either at the house or on campus, so I'm more than happy with the wifi-only model :)

    Besides, who would give up a launch day iDevice?!? Madness!

    What I've been realizing is that when I really really need 3G other than my iPhone 3GS, I need it on my MBP 13", not on my iPad.

    This is where Sprint overdrive or Verizon MiFi make the most sense.
    You will have coverage on both devices (and 3 more if needed)
    I just can't decide between sprint or verizon.. But this is my plan of attack

    I am so happy with my decision to go WiFi over 3G. I got the 64GB instead if 3G 32GB. I have tons of content. Tethering with my iPhone 3GS has been more than fantastic. And I barely take it outside the same like I do with my iPhone :)

    You need choices like
    "Flipped your launch iPad on eBay for profit to pay for the 3G model" ;)

    I plan buying a second one for my wife and maybe one for our kids to use eventually.
