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.

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup

Please use the reputation system if you think you've been helped - top right of this post

I saw those today, but I can tether free of charge from my iphone to my ipad. I only use up my data. which is fine. its only when I need something not in wifi range. thanks for the help!

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
