    Hi there,

    I would like to take the iPad 3G + wifi I bought in Malaysia to be used in US when I travel to there. Anyone can recommend how I can get a prepaid data plan for the iPad for a month? Thanks.

    You'll have no problems - both carriers - Verizon and AT&T (and the 'foreign' carriers') - have what you want and they do monthly plans too.

    But there are so many free WiFi hotspots in the US that, when I travel there, (from the UK) I never bother to either buy a pre-paid card or use my home account 'roaming'. You'll find WiFi hotspots **everywhere** - malls, hotels, motels, coffee shops, copy shops (i.e. Kinko's), franchises (MacDonalds, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, Starbucks etc etc), public transport, - almost anywhere. So, unless you're planning to spend time in a rural area, think about using WiFit - it it doesn't work out, you can always buy a pre-paid card.

    Enjoy your trip to the US!!

    Hi Tim,

    Thanks for your sharing. I am thinking to get a month of prepaid data for the GPS service while I'm driving there. I'll consider about those carriers that you suggest above. Thanks. :)
