iPads and iPhones both can connect to the web via a wireless router, so if you're going to use the iPad at home, and you have a wireless router there, then you don't need a data plan. If you don't have a data plan, though, then you can't get on the web when you're going mobile, unless you're in a free wireless connection point, like at Starbucks, for instance. Texting is charged as a separate category, and you can get a texting package without having a data plan. on iPhones and iPad, though you can use the Messages app as a texting resource, and it works fine without a data plan or a texting package if you're on your wireless network.
Very helpful info. THANK YOU!!!! Much clearer than Apple's on iPad website.
What I wanted as compensation was access to A FREE SEASON of Aussey Rules Football (Footie) I'd initially picked up the FOX Sports Package just to get it... only to find out that it's on FOX 2 ('er sumpthin')
I'd need to pay An Additional $20 per MONTH just to watch one 3 hour game per week! F'dat Noise!
Toss that in, and I'll stick... but I'm still planning to contact Comcast cometh Monday Morning to ascertain that they don't cover Bergen County.
