    I never activated mine and have enabled airplane mode so it does not continue to try automatically. So I am wifi only even though the tab would have been cheaper if I just waited for that one.

    I believe the Wifi version will be pretty much the same price as the non-wifi version. I would like to see how much it is. Hopefully it will be less than $400.

    Costco is only $399 for the 3G / Wifi model.

    Problem is Verizon (the carrier model sold at Costco) has unnecessarily crippled bluetooth functionality on the Galaxy tab such that certain bt peripherals such as bluetooth keyboards cannot be used. Really stupid move on their part. So no Verizon Galaxy tab (Costco) for me. I picked up my Sprint branded Galaxy Tabs on ebay. People appear to be dumping their Galaxy's now in anticipation of release of the Motorola Xoom. Lucky me...

    So does the TAB from a VZW store has the Bluetooth disabled too? Want to tether the TAB to my DINC., I also hate to say this but the iPAD is growing on me knowing I really don't like Apple.
    I am using this tablet for my kids to play with and for basic usage at home and movies. How do you get movies on the TAB?

    Yes, the Verizon version of the Tab has the crrippled BT regardless of where you buy it.
