    What are the costs/what is necessary for using a USA bought iPad in Canada? I have an AT&T wireless plan.

    TIA

    Turn off data roaming, first and foremost.

    Next thing depends on where you are going. You can get a Rogers SIM card for $15 per month that will give you 250MB. $35 takes you up to 1GB, I believe.

    If you are heading to northern BC/Yukon don't bother with Rogers. They have no service up there. Your options are Telus, Bell and NorthWestTel. Have a look at their websites for coverage maps and rates.

    For anything east of Saskatchewan, I'm in the dark.
