Wifi or 3G?

17 replies 12 views Edited Jan 11, 2012

Will you be getting the Wifi only version, or the Wifi/3G version of the vita? why?

Im getting the wifi only version simply because the 3G unit is $50 more plus the monthly fee, just too much money for me. They idea of it is awesome though.

Wifi. I don't need to always be connected to the internet with my Vita. That's what my smartphone is for; I'm already paying for that data plan, don't need another one.

Wifi only.  I only play games at home. I think 3g is a cool idea for people that travel a lot...just not my thing

2 quick questions about the 3G version. Will I have to pay monthly for 3G or will I be able to buy cards that activate it for a month? Also, will I be able to easily turn off 3G when I want to connect to wi-fi and not use any of my 3G data?

For $14.99, you can get 250MB. For $25, you can get 2GB. A contract isn't required for either month-to-month plan, , and each plan includes free access to "29,000 AT&T Wi-Fi hotspots..

also PS Vita systems with an active AT&T data plan will also take advantage of software functionality developed specifically for the 3G-enabled model that allow users to game at the speed of their mobile lifestyle, including turn-based, asynchronous multiplayer gameplay, instantly updated rankings and leaderboards, immediate access to the latest downloadable add-on content, and real-time community news.

as well as Vita players will be able to activate the 3G data plans directly from their 3G Vitas. is that what you wanted to know?

Kind of. I know all of that I just want to make sure I dont have to sign up for the 3G monthly plan and then have to cancel it for it to stop charging my credit card. Will they make cards I can buy (similar to PSN cards) that can just activate the 3G for a month? Then I can just buy another card when I want to use it for another month.

When you sign up for 3G (you only have to agree to terms) you get 310 hours of 3G free
