    MacBook Pro 15" 2014, 2.2GHz i7, 16GB RAM, 250GB SSD, OSX 10.9.5 - iPhone 5s 16gb
    The only way I know of is to jailbreak and use "mywi", anyone else with some ideas though? Because this one is'nt a "great" idea and quite long-winded.

    Consider a MiFi device, if they're available in your country (not sure where you are).

    They are 3g devices that create a wi-fi network. You can attach 4-5 devices and get them Pay-as-you-go so no data contract. just top up when you need it.
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .

    If I were you, I'd wait for iPad 2 to be released! If you haven't bought an iPad yet, you can certainly wait a few weeks more =) I have an iPad 16GB WiFi and will be getting iPad 2 when it's released.

    Of course you can't...Apple hasn't released the iPad 2 yet...or held any press conferences conveying what we can expect.

    All you got is rumors to rely on...just like the rest of us!

    If you want one get it if you feel it lacks something you need wait but that is no guarantee
    it will have what your holding out for.

    I bit the bullet and bought one from Apple today.

    The next iPad probably won't be out until at least April...

    For my uses, (web browsing, email, apps, Netflix, etc) the current iPad is more than sufficient.

    If by any chance, the iPad 2 completely blows me away with it's upgrades (kind of doubting that) I'll quickly sell off my iPad for a newer one.

    However, I don't think that'll be the case.

    Yes, the current pad is amazing. And I can buy the adapter for my cameras and stuff. So really, it is fine for me and my family. My 4 year old loves his brothers iPod so I'm getting an iPad too
