I believe many users wont be using the 3G on their iPad. I agree with most that you are going to be seeing these tablets only in use in WiFi spots.....local starbucks, barnes and noble and such. No1 will be walking down the mall with this in their hand and for GPS? Get yourself a garmin or Tom Tom for $299 and make sure you always have signal and clear directions. Trust me when I say this but the 3G iPad won't be popular because in my opinion, if you need something with data access wheres theres no wifi then get a netbook with a full operating system and not just a book reader. Just my .02.

What I think is BS is calling something unlimited and then capping you at 3 gigs data per month. Call it a 3 gig plan if you are going to do that...

I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

Kartracer you claim AT&T sucks because they don't cover your area?? Well where I live I have full bars and lightning fast 3g. All my pals with verizon though get NOTHING here. So just because AT&T doesn't work where you live doesn't mean they're a crappy network

I can't sell my iPhone on eBay because the screen is shattered, still works but it's shattered. I can't get rid of the phone and get a different phone because of the contract I signed. The one where I pay them for service, and they are supposed to provide me. They can breach that contact at will, and they do. But God forbid I don't pay my bill to reflect the quality of my service. I'm going to keep my phone and provider because my whole family has AT&T and I can't get a cheap enough plan to not burn through minutes talking to them. Plus the iPhone is so much better than anything on the market, I want to keep it. So I guess I'm ******** for no reason.

And your stupid *** proves my point, they can boast about how much better they are than Verizon, but as soon as you go outside a city with high population it's garbage.

^I can see you're nothing more than a petty thief. Removing software to circumvent their ability to see if you've purchased their software smacks of theft. I don't understand your beef with Microsoft, they don't even deny updates to a pirated copy of Windows 7. Besides, they're no worse than Apple at anything they do anyway. Both suck. The only reasons to 'hack' a 360 is to play copied games or cheat online. It has nothing to do with consumer rights/bad corporations. I don't agree with what either Apple or Microsoft do on everything, but that's no reason to steal from them. And it seems after all your insults and grandstanding, you agree with my assessment that AT&T has crappy coverage. It's a fact, plain and simple.
I don't understand how the iPad can make such a huge impact. Don't they already have a boatload of wireless connect cards in circulation anyway? Between all the iPhones, wireless connect cards, and other smartphones the iPad deserves no more attention than all the other devices clogging their networks. Yeah the iPad will make it worse, but not enough for the FCC to be 3 years late to fixing AT&Ts crappy coverage. And I don't believe that AT&T is spending all that money they say on wireless networks alone, they have to be spending it company wide. And from me using the speedtest app, even in a heavily wooded area in a busy part of Atlanta the speeds were faster than my parents DSL my a long way. So northeast Atlanta should be good.

That's the part I don't understand about all this - why do the broadband cards never come in to conversation? I currently do not have one but I do know many non iPhone users who use them like crazy.
Give AT&T a bit of credit. Don't forget we are leapfrogging the historical rate of cellular growth. It wasn't very long ago when a RAZR was the best devise money could buy.
Let the corporate capitalists sniff the earning potential and we will soon see great advancements.
Btw AT&T service has drastically improved in San Diego to beyond satisfactory in the last 6 months.
The unlimited 3g plan should be associated with each devise - to suppliment please create bundle plan for loyal customers that reduce the overall cost. Reducing the cellular taxes would really help also...

***edit: also you could use MiFi to extend your network to the iPad but then your iPhone is wasting power trying to run the WAP.

I have been with AT&T for years and have never got what all the complaining was about until just recently.
Only in the last month or so have I been overwhelmed by dropped calls and no service. I even have to turn off 3G and go with Edge on a semi-regular basis just to be able to send/receive text or emails...in fact I regularly am asked by the physicians in the hospitals what is wrong with their iPhones and have to show them the same work around. I am in the Phoenix area and I really hope that AT&T is updating the network or something of this nature to cause these problems...if this is a sign of the future you can count me out of anything beyond my 3Gs if it remains exclusive to AT&T!
iPad=worthless drain of dwindling network resources

They say I'm in a good coverage area....................yeah....................ri ght. Same location in all three tests, outside my place of employment during a smoke break. Broad daylight, rebooted in between every test so I know it had a fresh connection to the tower, and one I waited until it had 5 bars (very rare and intermittent data connection even with 5) to test. As you can see AT&T is so full of **** Luke Wilson is about to explode. Even joked to a friend of mine to hang up his phone so I'd get the best conditions possible. Remember this is a 'good coverage area that should have no problems' according to AT&T.
