I was just in Barcelona and was able to buy a 1gb plan for 4 days with Orange for 20 euros.
According to the sales rep for Orange in Paris, I needed to have a French bank account before I could purchase access. Perhaps the reason was that France does not have prepaid 3G??
PS. In order to activate the micro sim card, you must connect the iPad to a pc or laptop via iTunes or else it won't work
I will be taking a trip in September to Spain and France, and have an iPad2 w/AT&T 3G service.
I am interested in using the iPad for GPS if possible, which has lead to a number of questions.
Any help people could provide would be much appreciated.
My questions are:
Does the AT&T 3G service work in Europe, and, what is the best/cheapest way to handle the billing for it? I am on the $25/month plan presently.
I assume I will need the 3G service if I'm going to use the iPad for GPS navigation. (I have a Garmin GPS as an alternative, but, would rather not have to drag that along if I don't have to, plus, it needs updated maps so will cost some $$.)
I am assuming US car chargers will work on rental cars in Europe?
It sounds as if the wall charger that came with the iPad2 will work in Europe based on other threads, it is just a matter of having the correct plug, is that correct? Is there a name for the type of plug found most commonly through Spain and France?
Thank you for your help.
