    I have a wi/3g. I have not turned on the 3g yet nor have I bought the 3g data plan from at&t yet. My question: I use wifi only but some places that I will travel to on occasions I will need the a 3g data plan. Can I buy a 3g data plan say for a month then drop it and if so how would I go about dropping the plan? I know I can turn off the 3g on my ipad but how would I stop the billing? I don't want to have to call at&t. I try not to call at&t if I can help it. Thanks for any information!!!

    I did a google search for you and found out that once you activate the plan, you can cancel without penalty at any time. But you will have to call AT&T I'm sure. Unless they built that into their account services app.

    The plan runs per month so you can suspend it or cancel it after that date with no problem.
    If you suspend for less than 60 days, you can turn on any time with same info.
    After 60 days you have to re sign up, as a new client.

    You go to Settings >> Cellular Data and choose View Account to start a data plan.

    You can go to the same place to stop or change plans at any time. When you stop a plan, it will remain active until your current plan runs out (might be different with the new post pay option). If you change plans (say from a 250MB to the 2GB) the new plan takes effect immediately with the new data limit in effect. All plans auto-renew. You must stop them before the end of the current plan to avoid paying for the next month.
