I got the bundle and paid for my 3G. The icon shows its on and everything and that theres a connection however when I go to PSN or anything else it says I have to connect through wireless, PC, or PS3. So how does my 3G work if I can't connect to anything? I don't have a wireless connection that I'm aware of unless the vita itself is putting out a signal. Anyone able to help me on this? I tried looking up info but everything comes up blank or I get info on wireless
Thanks in advance.

Well I'm afraid that 3G is only used for a handful of features on the vita, and if I am not mistaken the psn is not one of them. Small things like checking facebook, twitter, using NEAR, and checking leaderboards, uploading leaderboard info in some games are what 3G is for. All of the major things like downloading games, or playing online multiplayer games does require a wifi connection.
3g is usable for anything the vita needs to do over the air if you dont have wifi, like psn, near, system update and browsing the web. you can download a game via 3g but it will take a hell of a long time and use up a shit load of your plans data allotment. i had a problem setting up my 3g but after a few calls with sony and at&t i got a new simcard and 3g works fine.
Is there a way to track how much of your 3G data you've used? Such as "xxxxMB/xxxxMB used"? I just want to conserve usage accordingly. Essentially I'll be using my 3G to tweet and check Tumblr via the browser while traveling.
