Sure, that would be good too. Primarily to secure everything when I'm out and about on my iPad using public wifi.

You just need a service that supports the PPTP protocol.

And apparently VPN doesn't work via Vodafone's www.iphone-vodafone.net.nz APN, you may need to use their usual www.vodafone.net.nz APN instead. I seem to recall reading that they'd fixed that a while back, but I may be wrong.

Only relevant if you happen to be trying to do it via a VF 3G connection.

I really like LogMeIn. Lets me log into my computer from my iPhone, or indeed from another computer.

Not correct at all, It depends on the VPN protocol you are using

I use ExpressVPN on both iPads I have (1 & 3) and it works very well. ExpressVPN has an express setup for iPad/iPhone so you barely have anything to do: http://www.expressvpn.com/tutorials/iOS_site

here is a $0.99 trial for express vpn available on this site http://www.vpnhero.com/expressvpn-coupon-codes/
