For 51 weeks of the year I have access to Wi-Fi and so do not have 3G on my iPad.  This is fine.  For one week I am on holiday on a small island where they have only just discovered Wi-Fi and it can be accessed from a couple of cafes a few miles from where we stay.  Now my daily newspaper (The Guardian) has stopped printing its international edition.  I have their lovely iPad app. but can't find any gismo which would enable me to get access to the internet for a week. There's no USB port.


Does anyone know of any other work around methods for temporary access please?

    You need a "mobile hotspot" that will receive the cellular signal where you stay and 'convert' them to wifi that your iPad can connect to.  Verizon makes one called a mifi.  Check the carrier where you holiday and see if they offer one.
