    No you dont give any info when purchasing a visa giftcard, just pay for it. They sell them at all the local stores.

    I would not get the american express giftard and stick with a visa one.

    Ok, so I finally managed to activate 3G with AT&T. You are correct, a Visa gift card worked. I picked one up at Walmart tonight, activated on the walmartgift.com site and entered a US address (any address would work, hotel, dentist office, zoo).

    Just make sure you don't pick up an actual Visa card as you'll then require a social security number and you won't be able to use it.

    I'm going to the States in a few weeks and called Apple and they assured me I could hook into AT&T with a Canadian address and credit card. Well so much for that. While in Canada you can buy I believe it's Master Card it's called Vanilla, this one can be activated online in Canada with a U.S. address. People are using this one to access the American ITunes store.

    I believe this is another big plus for the Ipad being able to have relatively easy access to Internet when traveling. Not sure if the makers though of this.

    i ran into this problem before when working on a traveling crew where we did not know where we where going to be the next week or sometimes the next day .. what i learned to do was use the office address as my main address and used in areas that said i had to have a physcial address..

    Used a Canadian American Express

    we just got back from the US and I had no issues using a Canadian American Express Card to activate my Ipad
    All I did was use the local ATT@T corps stores address for Billing and Usage info and My name and Amex # the the system took about 2 minutes to activate the account.
