    Hi

    I have a UK purchased IPad2 with 3G, which works superbly well in the UK on my home network (PC based) on WiFi at hotspots and 3G whenever the others are not available.

    I go to the USA a couple of times a year and want to use the IPad over there for e-mail, surfing and navigation.

    Where there are WiFi hotspots, no problem but what is the best way (and cheapest) to allow me to surf etc where no free access is available.

    So, for instance can I buy a sim in USA that will fit my IPad rather than setting up roaming through my UK based carrier, I know this is possible for mobile phones but what about Ipads?

    Thanks

    Eric

    Absolutely, it's not a problem. AT&T have many plans for the iPad - have a look at their site. I just wander into an AT&T shop, sign up for the plan I've chosen, pay, they give me the SIM and I'm good to go.
