After dominating a fantasy baseball season I have decided to spend my winnings on an Ipad and accessories.

Should I buy it in the store or should I go with the online one so I can have them print the names of the people that paid for it on the ipad?

Just got the iPad 2

Still learning the ropes

Anyone ever use the slingbox? Tony mazz's commercial makes it sound pretty cool...being able to watch your own tv shows on your iPad.

Apple aficionados - I just received a new iPod nano 6th generation for sending in my old 1st gen iPod nano which apparently had a recall. Id like to transfer my 100 or so songs from iTunes on my iPad over to my new nano. I have no idea how to accomplish this. Anyone have any ideas?

So I can upgrade my phone through Verizon on 9/19. Currently have an old-ass Blackberry. So with the new Iphone 5 apparently coming out any day, will the Iphone 4 or 4s be going on sale? Seems like it would right? I don't care if I have the 4, 4S, or 5 but if the 4 is significantly cheaper I'll just get that.

How much $$$ am I looking at? My BB was $50 when I got it 2 yrs ago....I know Iphones are a lot more.

$ will probably be $50 bucks, 4S $100-150.
Verizon might even offer a deal

If Verizon is your provider their Iphone 4S can be provisioned for use overseas, while their Iphone 4 cannot.
If you have AT&T everything works overseas but not so good here.

Don't know if I will be going overseas anytime soon, or if I would be calling anyone once I'm there.

You could get a 3 for nothing so, with the 5 coming out soon, the 4 should be cheap.

See if you can get unlimited data plan. My brother got the 3 for $0 but couldn't get an unlimited data plan (about $97/month).

I'll prob get the 4 then.

Right now me and my wife's blackberry are unlimited and I think we will be grandfathered into unlimited. Thats what I'm hoping for atleast. Our monthly bill for 2 blackberry's and an Ipad is right around $150.

MCM I hope you are right about being grandfathered in but sadly my experience has been that as soon as you change/upgrade devices your unlimited plan goes away too and you will have a choice of either 2Gb or 4GB plans. Changing from Blackberry to an Iphone will require a data plan change as well as a voicemail change and you will lose your old voicemail when switching over. Unlimited data is going the way of the dinosaur.

Do you use the iPad outside of your house? I just use my home wireless for my iPad instead of paying extra because I don't use it anywhere else.
