iPad 2 3G price-plans compared
Three are the best
Updated Planning to buy a 3G-enabled iPad 2? To help you choose the right package, here are how the UK operators stack up. We'll be adding other carriers as they announce prices.
Review Apple iPad 2
How about doing a comparison of buying a pristine non-3G iPad outright and pairing it with a cheap MiFi type device? Or using any Android device that turns your phone into a hotspot?
Either way, I figured a couple of years ago that when it comes to Apple, it's best not telling the phone companies you're using an Apple device, as the costs generally go up. iPhone 4 + cheap SIM-only tariff works out a lot cheaper - I can only imagine the iPad works out similarly.
Re: What happened to all you can eat on Three?
The iPad is classed as mobile broadband - 'cos it can't make phone calls, I presume. The all-you-can-eat data plans are voice plans.
They (at least used to) put specfic code on the iPhone SIMs to stop you using them in iPads. My Three iPad 1 seems happy with a 3Pay SIM, but there's no credit on it so I can't do anything with it.
"unlimited Wi-Fi - subject to 10GB Fair Use Policy"
This really pisses me off! Why can't they be honest and just say that it's 10GB Wi-Fi? That's perfectly acceptable and also fairly generous. F***ing small print lawyers!
I got quoted the same deal on Voda - i have 2 phone contracts, mine and him indoors - spend about £60 per month. Just rang the standard sales line via 191.
Do you have to be paying a lot to vodafone already for that deal? I have a vodafone PAYG phone that I keep 'for emergencies', only 100 quid up front sounds quite tempting, and a low-ish overall cost.
Anyone want to buy an ipad 1? :D
