I will need to get a prepaid AT&T Sim for my iPad when we arrive in the US in April. Is it difficult to activate and to prepay data using OZ credit card or should I buy a prepaid credit card to pay for the data.
Should I go to an Apple store for assistance or do I go the an AT&T store.
Any advice appreciated.

Hope you are visiting for pleasure. I would think that you should try an AT&T store first. There are far more of them than Apple stores and they should know more about their product. You may want to have a chat session with AT&T customer service even before you arrive if possible from Oz. I find the operators to be more patient and to have better access to correct information.

It doesn't matter what US address you use, so just pick one randomly. There will be no mail sent to the address anyway. (I've had AT&T data on iPad for nearly three years straight and haven't received any snail mail from them.)
