The iPad 3G can get the same 3G service through AT&T for $30/month unlimited, and $15 for light use. The iPad can (and will) be set up to work as a phone through bluetooth, Google Voice, Skype, and whatnot. So for $30/month you can have unlimited internet and voie through the iPad, and you can stop and resume at any time. No 2-year contract.

    iPad: NO CONTRACT, $30/month for unlimited DATA and VOICE
    iPhone: CONTRACT, $70/month MINIMUM for unlimited DATA and VOICE

    So turn your "brilliant" scenario around: get the iPad 3G, tether your iPhone to it with MyWi, and use T-Mobile's Pay-As-You-Go for voice. Or do the same thing as the iPad phone scheme with the iPhone tethered to the iPad. There are plenty of guides around that will guide you through setting up free VoIP service on the iPhone.

    I really can't make this any more obvious for you.
    Tzones is slow, but five bucks a month for me.
    iPad needs faster internet. 15 bucks is not much to pay. If I run over, I'll tether to Tzones.

    Big deal.

    3G != EDGE, enjoy your slow, slow T-Mo interwebs.

    And yeah, what someone else said, the iPad is really great for some of us that don't have flashy top-notch smartphones as it is. As of right now I have a piece of junk that I'm trying to replace here, so I will force the iPad work for me just the way I'd like.
