Well, I do have questions. I've ordered a 3G in Canada. The official provider is Rogers, an affiliate of AT&T. I would want my provider to be Telus with whom I already have a cellphone account. They're also the fastest 3G in the country with the biggest area coverage. I've written them to ask if they had plans for the iPad to which they answered that they do not share information on planning strategy. But ... the person there gave me a link to an article on a possibility of a similar program from Telus to the one offered by Rogers.

My question is this. Can or will Apple prevent this? Is there such a situation in the States? Is such an exclusivity limited by a time clause?

I am not the one to answer this one as I am not in North America however In Australia we have not received the latest updates from all the providers as they are waiting for May 28th and I guess to see what the other telco's do. Only Optus and Telstra have provided plans Not sure if that helps but its all I can provide

Hi iVan in fact Apple have clearly say the device is unlock for worldwide so i believe it’s the same everywhere , yet my 3G have worked with Singtel sim card and yet China Unicom and trouble at all with both … everybody choose the plan and provider he want

it’s like the iPhone factory unlock have many over the world and no complain (only the one play Jailbreak) i have read yesterday Telefonica in Belgium will have sim card and data plan even before the device arrive in Belgium that’s the rule of business first come first serve

I have a 64GB, 3G ipad in Jakarta. I bought a SIM card from the largest carrier here, Telkomsel, and cut it to fit in the iPad. I activated and registered the SIM card to carry data, and got confirmation on this through SMS (while the card was in my mobile). I have the correct APN settings in the iPad, and it gets a great signal. However, it will not connect to the internet! Does this mean I will have to jailbreak, or does this mean I am still a complete novice with Apple devices (since this is my 1st)?
Thanks

Hi Sehat,

I read your post and I have the same Ipad specs and the same problem. However, I have not cut any sim card yet. May be you/we should go to Semangi Mall as I heard they probably have the largest selection of Ipad accessories and may be someone can assist on set-up the 3G network.

I am using cbn.net for my email and First Media for internet access. Apparently I have problem setting up my email. I called both ISP and they do no know how to set-up email for Ipad.Do you have any suggestions how to set-up my email account with the correct pop and smtp?

At any rate, thanks for reading my post and let me know your findings regarding above.

Terima Kasih Banyak,

Java

Use one of these 2 settings:

Telkomsel Setting:
Access Point Name : telkomsel
Username : wap
Password : wap123

Or:

Telkomsel

APN: Internet
User ID: wap (or you can leave it blank)
Password: wap123 (or you can leave it blank)

One of them should work.
Also If you cut the card down yourself then make sure the ipad does not report sim not present.
You could insert the sim into a phone to make sure it works with data before cutting/ using it on the ipad.

Zorban:
Those settings make no difference, I've tried them both, as well as making sure the card works in my phone.

Java:
You set up email through iTunes, but only works for a few providers. See the iPad manual for more info on setting up the email.

All:
I wonder if the iPad needs a GPRS 3G, I think telkomsel is HSDPA, but am not sure. I am going to try IM3 and Indosat sim cards to see if it makes any difference. My iPad gets a great signal, but has no Internet connection, even though my telkomsel sim card is registered for data.
