    Hello everyone. I've just bought my first apple product ofcourse the iPad, 2 days ago. I've been searching this forum for almost a month until I decided to look for my new tablet.

    It's been a whole day searching 64GB +3G from zhuhai, Macau until I have found it in Shenzhen which cost me US1000.

    It is still sealed in the box and got it from apple authorized reseller. It has an AT&T sim card inside when I open the sim card slot. At first, I can not access the apps store until I have created a US account and voilà, I have installed more than 50 free apps.

    I am very happy with my new iPad and I can access my ms exchange email, my kids love to play the games and I want to try the paid apps once I have access on Asian apple store 2 months from now.
    The unit can scan china mobile and china unicom but I still don't have the micro sim ready yet.
    Thanks to ipadforum and more power.

    Welcome! And glad you joined us....

    Smart idea setting up a US account, at least you got some apps to play with until your store opens....

    And a $1,000 for a 64-3G is not too bad. Welcome from Europe

    Ni Hao from Guangzhou, you can access to US iTunes i have post article how to do in the international section here…. for the sim card you can buy (prepaid or contract) from China Unicom and cut the sim card as i do that work fine for me

    China Mobile their 3G is slow as it’s special 3G and don’t work well with apple products from oversea (iPhone/iPad)

    Hi IpadOne. Can you share how you cut your SIM card? Which cutting tool did u use? I still have my original AT&T SIM and i can follow the shape for me to cut the China Unicom. I am planning to get the sim this weekend. How about the setting (APN, etc.)?
    Thanks.:)

    Welcome! I bungie jumped from the Macau tower a couple of years ago.

    I also don't think $1000 is so bad for the 64GB 3G. I paid about that much for mine under the "official" prices - and I'm still waiting for it.

    Hi sorry due to the size file i can’t give you the nice file how to do …


    concerning the network info i have ask a friend to give me the correct one (China Unicom), if you have an iphone is exactly the same but it’s based on each operator …

    i don’t recommend you to use China telecom for the 3G …


    don’t hesitate to ask me if you got some trouble
