Yes, you still need to take out a 2 year contract, but if you were thinking about an iPad purchase this might be worth considering. Apparently Best Buy is offering WiFi only iPad’s for sale that include a free MiFi card. You can pick your carrier between Sprint, Verizon, and AT&T.
You do need to sign up for a 2 year contract, but as we’ve said many times, a MiFi card is a great way to have a mobile hotspot for multiple devices. MiFi cards normally run around $100 to $130 depending on where you shop and the deals available, and keep in mind there are other alternatives out there that run a little cheaper when it comes to the contract part.
