    I will be in Dubai for a week and want to connect my iPad to Internet with a 3G micro sim.

    Does anyone know if Du or Etisalat sell a prepaid DATA sim or micro sim for this?

    If so how much will it cost for say a 1gb data sim?
    Note, I do not want a mobile phone connection - just an iPad Internet connection.

    Have you tried contacting the cellular carriers in Dubai directly to ask? They would have all the info you need.

    You do have a 3G iPad2, right? Usually you need to buy a micro-sim card from the local cellular data service provider in Dubai and buy enough data to last a week? As scifan suggested, check in with the local provider and they will give you their data plans. I did a search and found this information.

    Thank you gents. My iPad has wifi and 3G.

    I'll contact Du and/or Etisalat when I arrive in Dubai.

    Their prices are high in comparison to many places though.

    Regards
