    How to best swap iPads?
    Hi Folks:

    I have a personal Verizon 3G iPad, and from work was issued a WiFi model, both brand new.


    Came out of work yesterday, realized I wanted to look at traffic...OOPS, no WiFi. Grrr.

    Realized I *think* I want to use the 3G to carry around and at work, and leave the WiFi model from work at home where my kid web surfs and Facebooks etc.

    What is the best way to essentially swap the contents of the two? I don't mean so much pictures and music, though there is some of that. I mean more apps and such.

    I do use two different Apple IDs...

    1. Backup each iPad using iTunes.
    2. Wipe each iPad.
    3. Restore from the other's backup.
