I can also do (much) of this on transit to and from school.
I do not bother with the data plan because I spend most of my time within reach of a free wifi connection and it's not worth the money.
Same here. I download whatever I need when I am at home .... Then the rest of the time I use it without an Internet connection.
Actually, right now, I am at home sitting on a toilet bowl, and typing on my iPad at the same time.
