Verizon VS AT&T (vs Sprint?)
All 3 work pretty well in my area so that is not much of an issue.
Verizon used to show a 1 Gig plan is that still around? Does the AT&T ipad get AT&T mobile hot spot access? Does the GPS work the same on both networks? Will Sprint even get the ipad 2 and what will the data rate be?

Verizon is good but more expensive. The AT&T network seems to be great but the customer service kinda sucks. Sprint has ok service and the customer service is getting better. The call center for tech support for the iPhone will be based in Tulsa ok and it is a great call center and to my opinion the best tech center sprint has.
I'm with AT&T just made the switch in August because the sprint network coverage was bad in my area.
Oh yeah only bad thin with sprint I ha was the additional third party services that would appear on my bill like $9.99 each and I didn't know what they were.

Another thing you might want to consider if you don't need the cellular built into the iPad (and if you are having trouble deciding) is to get a device like a MiFi, which provides wifi from a little cell-phone sized unit... or get a cell phone and use tethering. That way your iPad isn't tied (in a built-in way) to some particular provider. You can also use it with other wifi devices.
The big advantage is that if you want to switch providers or a new network with higher speed becomes available, you can switch and don't have to get a new iPad (and other devices) to take advantage of it. I guess the downside is that you have another device to pack, but it's pretty small (and if you did the tethered phone, you'd probably want a phone along anyway).
