if I get an ipad 2 with wi-fi and 3g do I have to activate the 3g before I can use the tablet?

I want to get an iPad 2 for my wife. Most places will have wi-fi accessibility but I am thinking of buying one with 3g capability in case I may need it later. I need to know if I can still use the iPad without setting up the 3g account.

    No you do not ever need to activate the 3G fo the iPad to work but, its always good to have it because someday your going to need it.
