Apple's iPad coming to AT&T and Verizon stores on October 28th - Page 3

post #81 of 126
Not necessarily defending AT&T here, but it seems like some are bashing their $15 for 250mb plan, which agreed is not much. But don't forget they also have the 2GB plan for $25. So for $5 more than Verizon's 1GB plan you get double the data. Just looking at that particular price plan, an argument could be made that AT&T is the better deal. Obviously many other factors go into consideration.

Our local VZ store is adjacent to the ATT store... I think I'll meander down there on "availability" day and see wha's happenin'.

That's quite an expensive proposition considering you're shelling out $130 for the MiFi unit, which as far as I can tell, doesn't work with any other carriers service here. So if you "try" it as you say, and then decide that EV-DO is slower than AT&T in your area or has worse coverage and decide to cancel, all you're left with is a Wi-Fi iPad that you could have bought for $130 LESS and a useless MiFi device.

So, does this mean we will never see a CDMA iPad? What does that mean for the rumored CDMA iPhone? If Apple was planning for a CDMA iPhone, why wouldn't they also create a CDMA iPad?

Suggests to me that this is a "place-holder" solution; gets iPad on the Verizon system while VZ gears up for the CDMA iPhone. Then--six months from now?--Apple can follow up by introducing a CDMA iPad.

It's not unfortunate as now you just buy the wifi only iPad, which is what VZ is really selling and save yourself the extra $30 that VZ is charging I'm the bundle. And unless you wanted to cancel from month to month, in which case why would you bother with a MiFi, you're fine!

until LTE is rolled out, VZW's "iPhone" is gonna be an iPod touch with a MiFi taped to the back of it and Skype preinstalled.

Can activation/deactivation be done thru the iPad? Or do I need yet another device to activate it?

Can I charge this MiFi device from the iPad?....or do I need to worry about recharging each time?

With a 4 hour battery life, is there an easy way to turn it off?.....is there an audible reminder that it is still on?


1) Not sure but right now everything can be done online to activate/deactivate service, its super easy and I do it all the time.
2) Prob no reactivation fee's since they are pushing this and partially competing now with ATT
3) No. Mifi uses a Mini USB to charge it. Most phones now are Mini USB
4)Yes, it is like any other electronic device. It has an On/Off button. It has no tones or anything, just a red/green light. When the light is red, it is almost dead, when it is green it is still good, and when it is charging the light is orange.

Mifi is pretty basic, has no screen, jsut one button, one light and a plugin. The password to get onto it's wireless network is located on the bottom of the MiFi device. Simpe. Easy. Any wifi device can connect to it, not just the iPad.

I already own an iPad, and MiFi. And dont feel like paying an early termination fee on my MiFi just to get another one of each...

Yeah, this is the first official Apple press release that mentions Verizon. It is right next to a press release mentioning a similar offering at AT&T retail stores. The message I got is that Verizon is now on the same relationship level as AT&T. YMMV.

I'm sorry I fail to see the point then as VZ's bundle is $30 more expensive than buying both devices separately, which you already have. The only advantage of the bundle is the lack of a contract. But if you had no intention of using VZ's data plans all the time, then you wouldn't have gotten the MiFi, so presumably you're going to pay for VZ data service even without a contract that forces you to.

So you're not missing out on much...

Yeah, it depends on how far you are from the tower, and how many other people are trying to use the same tower.

Where I live, there is no AT&T 3G (they have yet to deploy). There is EV-DO coverage (although the towers are 6 miles away). I once did a coverage test using a HTC 6700. At most places on the property, I could get nothing better than 1xRTT. In a few places I could get 400Kb/sec. So, even with the mifi, I'm not sure how well this would work for me.

My guess is Jobs finally gave in to Verizon. Really all things apple would normally be, "here is the price and its the same for everyone". Data plans should be the same for both Att and Verizon as far as the pad goes. Verizon can jack up their prices for the cell plans when iPhone comes out since they already know there will be a good size group leaving the ATT boat.

The price of the MiFi without contract is 270. If you buy this bundle that's 140 less. Plus you get access to a special discount rate for internet.

iPad - 500
MiFi w/out contract - 270
Total unbundled price = 770
(No contract, would have to follow unbundled pricing)

iPad - 500
MiFi w/ contract - Free
2-year contract - 40(250mb) or 60(5GB)
Total unbundled price = 1460 or 1940 over 2 years

iPad w/ Mifi - 630
Month-to-month contract for 2 years - 20(1gb), 35(3gb), 50(5gb)
Total bundled price = 1110, 1470, 1830.

The best deal in this case would be the 1GB contract bundled. For the same price you can get 3gb instead of 1gb PLUS not have to be in a 2-year contract.

Anyways.. Verizon's data plans for the iPad is better than AT&T's I think..

cdma iphone's are coming out (or have come out already) in India, so it's almost guaranteed it will come out in the US late this year year or early next

It seems counter intuitive to let verizon have the pad since now you have to have two components for one device. So old school man! The point of the pad is its simplicity. Droid phones get GPS on verizon, its a stupid thing to let Verizon ad a device to the mix to be able to get it with them. They are going to cash cow this one to death.

no Gps, the obvious choice is att as far as i am concerned. I have seen it used for gps navigation in a car. That would be pretty sweet to have an ipad as the center counsel docked in for gps and car stereo adjustments, shoot make it so it can be used to adjust the temp in your car!

How is that different than buying a 3G iPad only to have it not work in your area?

No mystery, what GPS is used for should be obvious( location).
Thus not having it seems to be a loss of a basic functionality in a 'mobile device'(Steve says they're a mobile computing company now). Some people think it should be a standard feature(like me). Others could care less. Some would like to be able to use GPS without the data plan. Which can be done on some app's / devices.

The negatives of having the chips are-extra cost of the chips, and they suck power when in use. But, they can be turned off.

IMO - having the chips out weighs the drawbacks and should be a standard feature, but thats just me.

I also think this is just Phase One of many phases. I am sure soon they will have a 3G+Wi-Fi VZ iPad soon, maybe first Qtr of 2011. Very seriously doubt Verizon would accept this wifi only deal longterm. My guess is in the first six months of 2011 there will be a 3G+Wi-Fi VZ iPad and a VZ iPhone. Be an early adopter if you want, but again to me it's best to wait cuz in time they'll have better offerings. After that the questions is when will they offer a 4G iPad & iPhone on Verizon and AT&T?

That really would suck and you'd be screwed. But I think Apple does allow returns on opened iPads??? But I'm on AT&T with my iPhone in the Bay Area and on my trips recently through DC, NY, and NJ a few months ago, I can't recall ever having no reception. So, considering I'm in what is supposed to be the two WORST areas for AT&T reception, I have to imagine there can't be a whole lot of other major places without an AT&T presence.

Wow. I didn't realize VZ was shafting their contracted users so badly. I had assumed the data plan pricing was based on VZ's existing data plan pricing. That does suck.

I just think the Verizon option is reasonable for people that prefer Verizon over ATT for whatever reason. More carriers is usually a good thing.

There are some subtleties here, that are [somewhat] hidden by the bundle:

-- A WiFi Tablet
-- A cell-WiFi bridge
-- A non-contractual cell service

1) We have a Universal, cell-band-independent mobile tablet [device]
2) We have a Universal, carrier-independent mobile tablet [device]
3) We have a Universal, contract-independent mobile tablet [device]
4) We have a Universal, subsidy-independent mobile tablet [device]

Who's to say that AT&T could not offer a similar cell-WiFi bridge (or iPhone Tether) as part of an AT&T bundle?

Or Sprint? Or Anyone?

Who says that some non-carrier can't offer one or more cell-WiFi bridges (for different cell radio bands)?

Who says you can't build your own bundle of bits you purchase separately-- one from column (provider) A, one from column (provider) B... ?

Who's to say the mobile tablet [device] can't be used as a phone to make and receive calls?

Where does that leave the consumer vis-a-vis the Carrier?

What effect does that have on voice and data plan tiers and offerings?

What effect does that have on contracts?

What effect does that have on subsidies?

What effect does that have on Carrier branding, crapware, forced UI inclusions and restrictions... ?

It's more than just carrying another device. You also need to charge it (for every 4 hours of use), configure it (via a MAC/PC), and connect it. That's like telling me that in order to use my cell phone, I need to buy another device to connect it to the network before it can take/make calls. On top of that, you are connecting it to a slower network. No thanks.

I have an ipad 3g, a macbook pro, and my wife has an ipad wifi.

Right now, I have to pay AT&T $30 or so for data on just the ipad 3g.

With the virgin mobile, I can (after purchasing device) pay $40 and all three devices plus two more can use the mifi service, and I can use it for one month when I travel and then not renew the next month when I am home with my home network. Perfect!

How do you like it so far? I had the virgin mobile usb modem and it worked great with my macbook pro.... also had a pay as you go and only when you need it type deaal....

Mifi is the same coverage and speed as the cell phone so if you get bad cell service, miff will be the same.

Let us know as soon as you can tether you iPad to your laptop (or other wi-fi device) and share a single data plan with all of your mobile devices. Yes, there are drawbacks (carrying a 2nd, although small, device; having to charge it). But to have the option to take my laptop instead of my iPad if that's the device I need for that particular trip, and use the same MiFi and the same data contract? That to me far outweighs the negatives.

The "contracted" prices you are referring to are for their independent broadband service (ie, seperate from a phone contract). You can't compare that to the "bolt-on" data packages you get with your iPhone because those are limited to providing data ONLY to the iPhone. Check out ATT's independent broadband data plans and I think you'll find them to be very similar to Verizon's (although I haven't compared since ATT got rid of their unlimited data options).

Verizon's new data rates for the iPad bundle are a far better value than ATT's if you have other devices (laptop, touch, etc) that can connect via wi-fi. With ATT, you'd need a 2nd data plan because you can't tether to your iPad.

Doesn't Clear also use Sprint's network, including their 4G network? You can get an iDevice specific mifi device for even less per month, but it's restricted to only work with iPhone, touches, and iPads. They charge a lower price on the assumption that an iDevice would use less bandwidth than a full-fledged laptop.

Hi Katonah
I like it. There are people online who think that it is not as fast as the actual Sprint mifi but I have gotten good speeds out of it. I recently took it for a 4 hour road trip (with long stretches of mountain highway) and had no problems steaming music to my iPhone with it. Your mileage might vary though depending on location. They also have a $10 plan for (I am going from memory here and probably wrong about the cost, data and days) 100 megs for 10 days so you can buy the card at best buy and the 10 day plan and test it in your area. If it does not work you can return the card to best buy (they told me I had 30 days to return it) and you would only be out of $10.

Great idea -thanks...

I just hate the idea of paying a data fee PER DEVICE. I already pay that on our iphones, and home internet. One price for multiple portable devices seems much better to me.

Is that so wrong?!!!

I am in agreement!

We have AT&T U-Verse for Cable and Internet

We Have AT&T Wireless family plan for 5 people-- 2 adults and 3 teenagers.

We have 6 iPhones, but 4 are simless -- the 3 kids use the simless Phones as iPod Touches / PGPs

The 3 kids have crap phones that they lose or break on a regular basis.

We have 2 iPads -- i WiFi only, We will soon buy another iPad -- Maybe the VZ deal.

What really seems stupid that separate data plans are tied to individual devices!

If we could contract a single data plan for all devices then we could get rid of the crap phones...

Month-to-month VZ data plan on a multi-user MiFi

Better tethering pricing than AT&T

Just add FaceTime, even on a next gen WiFi iPad, and we've got something to look at.

That is a good opening for some phone company! Like you, our kids have the our old simless iphones and I have installed skype on them and created a skype account so they can use it to call me when on wifi (mostly just a game for them at home as they are pretty young). Would be great to buy multiple mifi's tied to a single data account per your idea. I have JB them and use backgrounder to keep Skype logged on for them and that would be a cool way to have them stay in touch without any sort of voice contract. There is also an app called line2 that I have read about but not looked into personally that is getting some positive reviews by David Pogue @ NYTimes.

post #119 of 126
But the iPad doesn't need a cell connection--I'm using one right now, project-managing development of an iPad app, and I'm merely connecting using the WiFi.

Which, unlike my Motorola Droid, actually CAN connect and send/receive data over the Wifi connection :-)

And did you notice that Blackberry's answer to the iPad doesn't even have cell connectivity? You have to plug it into a separate Blackberry phone! *sigh*. Although that's stupid, it's saying the RIM doesn't think people will pull the masses of data over cell, but rather over wireless.

Which is what's genius about this iPad test... Put some Apple users on VZ and see how things go, from announcement to launch to usage. Plus Apple gets to sell more iPads.
