    Hi, I'm a hi-tech enthusiastic. I want to share some of my experience.

    There are not many iPads yet in Colombia, but I think it'll be a lot...

    I've already connected mi iPad to a 3G carrier in Colombia and it works well...

    Regards to all!!!

    Hi, I live in Colombia and I use my iPad with a 3G data plan a lot.
    Here we have cellular companies 3 options. Comcel, Movistar and Tigo. All of three have a prepaid data plans. The only issue is that they don't have microsim, I had to cut the Sim card and it works very well on my iPad.

    You can check COMCEL, MOVISTAR and TIGO web sites (don't forget to put ".co" at the end) for reviewing all prepaid data plan that they have. You can choose a day, a week and a month data plan unlimited without contract. All of them are 3G.

    I hope this information can help you.

    Hi There JC,
    I have a question, when you said you had to cut the Sim card and it works very well... do you mean that literally or you just mean you don't need the Sim card at all for it to work there? Thanks.

    Hi macklin,
    I've cut the simcard beacause the iPad use a microsim. I used the instructions from Youtube

    Hi jccd, thank you for the information but I have another question for you if you don't mind. I am going on vacation to Colombia for 3 weeks and I want to bring my iPad along. I don't expect I will be using it that often since I will be traveling out of the capital and doing sight seeing but i want to have the luxury if using it here and there. I do speak Spanish but reading it is another story! (i did go to the websites you referred us to but lets just say i got a headache and got lost in translation). So to cut to the point which plan exactly do you have and how much did it cost? (and if you have any suggestions/recommendations for my situation I would greatly appreciate it!!!!) Advanced thanks from the US.
