iPad 3 - Page 16

post #226 of 736
So I pre-ordered my iPad 3 online and chose to pick it up at the store on the 16th -- do they reserve these pick ups for their customers so that you're guaranteed to get one?

I didn't realize this, but Verizon has a 1gig plan for $20 a month. That's not bad at all and just the right amount of data for casual use on the go.

I would think so because you've already paid for it. I also considered this option, but didn't want to stand in line on the 16th to get mine.

Wouldn't I be able to just skip the line, walk right in, and pick up my iPad?

Surely, they wouldn't make me wait in line with all the people who haven't preordered,..

I don't know for Apple but it's like that on video game releases so it very well could be. I know because a friend waited for CoD and he had to wait, even though he pre-ordered, and there were tons of people buying it at the release.

You get to stand in line w/ the other 1,000 people that pre-ordered.

It means you have one reserved. You can go at any point and pick it up. I would wait till mid to late day so the lines have had a chance to settle down a little. Your line will go a lot faster then those camping out to by one in the store that day. Don't stress over it.

Sleep in, morning sex, brunch, and then head to the mall.

Sounds good, guys, thanks.

I just realized I probably didn't need to buy the 4G iPad. I have a 4G Verizon hotspot device provided by my company.. I could just use that all the time instead of paying for my own data plain.gif

Oops.

Cancel it and re-order?

4G has a GPS chip, just an FYI. Did not know that till my step fathered ordered. Probably would need data to work I'm sure...

You don't have to pay a monthly fee if you don't want to. It just won't work if you don't. Main thing is you would be out the $130, up front. So you need to ask yourself how much you can depend on having this 4G hotspot at all times of need or not. If you can depend on having it around, then save the cash. If not, then it might be worth it.

Two inexpensive stands for the iPad I found.

This one can be had for $30 shipped from Amazon and it's PRIME eligible: http://www.elagodesign.com/english/index.html. I like that much better then Apple's stand and it's around the same cost.

If you need a simple stand to put on your coffee table or toss in your bag, this would do nicely. Super cheap and lightweight: http://www.groovystand.com/
