If you have a wifi only ipad can youconnect a usb t stick to access the internet! or do you need the 3G/wifi model. Thanks just trying to decide what would be best for me

my ipad does not have a usb port in it. Do any of them!

iPads do not have USB ports so you cannot use a USB modem

You can, however, use the internet connection from most smartphones. This is called tethering. Note that while tethering battery life will suffer somewhat on the phone

ok, if I had just a wifi ipad, and I am travelling about and there are no wifi hotspots, does this mean I can't access the internet. Or is there another option to get around this. eg a modem for ipads! Thanks!

As above, you can tether to a smartphone, or alternatively a dedicated device such as this http://www.vodafone.co.nz/shop/mobileInternetDetails.jsp!skuId=sku10850013 (other providers have them too)

Roaming 3G is such a rip off here in NZ, have you seen how little they pay for it in Australia!!
