    Using American address with AT&T to use 3G in US

    Kaykaykay--Thank you so much for your help! We just applied at a bank here in Canada for an American credit card, which we'll use to buy a simcard and pay-as-you-go plan at an AT&T store for use of the 3G in the US. And we'll now feel a lot better about using our son's Boston address. Your help is much appreciated!
    All the best, rafraj

    Anybody know how I can go about using an iPad 2 AT&T 3G in Japan? What do I need to do?

    Post #51... 200$ for 20MB AT&T international data roaming

    I don't think you want to do that.
    Get a local microsim once you get here

    Trying to find out if getting a microsim in Japan is possible. It may not be.

    Another option would be to get portable mifi with a pay-as-you-go plan

    I will be traveling to the US next month. The thing is, I already have an AT&T micro sim card that I had purchased a year ago and used in my IPad 1. Does anyone know if I could now use that same micro sim card and re activate or start a new contract for 3G service?

    Or, do I have purchase a new micro sim when I get there?

    Put it in, find a wifi area, then sign up for the plan. Cancel it before you leav the US.

    With most having the free wifi, that's the reason I went with the wifi version.
