Thanks Stan. What I meant was we have Wifi through our cable provider. We can run our laptops anywhere in the house, even on the patio without be plugged in to anything.

UPDATE: I got her the Ipad yesterday as a "just because" gift. She was very happy about it!!!!!

I doubt that she will like to play the facebook games on the iPad but she might.

Also, get her a good case and depending on how easy she is with equipment should determine if she gets a hard case or a soft case.
Also, make sure the case will swivel the iPad so it can be read portrait or landscape.
amazon has a lot of good case and my suggestion is to get one that the iPad slips into the case and is completely surrounded, not one that the iPad just snaps in.

I will find a link for you to show you an example of what I mean.

This particular case does not allow for turning however, it does show what I mean about the iPad slipping "into" the case.

Cases...

If you have a kid, my two year old's ipad has this one and it is THE BOMB:

Like a bomb could go off and the ipad won't be hurt.
We slip it into the extra holder if we want to use the stand.

My wife and I really like her cover. The ipad does not slip in any direction.
It is quality, smells nice, feels nice, is thick and easy to grip (ha ha ha, that's what she said):

He clearly stated that he has laptops and hardly anyone today is using an Ethernet cable on a laptop so I (correctly) assume he had what he needed.

This is a nice case. Not so much for drop protection. And it really is on sale. I paid $50 for it.

Given the level of his tablet knowledge and the fact that I know several people who have laptops who don't use wifi, I figured it was important to be clear.

I never considered a case, but I will now. No kids to use the Ipad, but if she drops it as much as her cell, I will get her one right away. Thanks, all.

So if I have an Apple Ipad Mini...how do I get unlimited internet with the Ipad?

The carrier is Tmobile. How can the Ipad be unlocked?


Is there a way to get unlimited internet/email like I have on my cellphone, but with a secure connection for doing bill pay?

TIA!

Check with Tmobile (go to the store and ask). Anyway, there is some information here:
