If i dont need dataplan for new iPad3, do I need to create an account with ATT and then Cancel it?

I bought a new iPad 3 with 4g and gifted it to my sister who is out of country. She doesnt need att connection but plans on getting a data connection from their local carrier. i havent set up the account with at&t yet. Do i need to do something, like setting up the account with At&t and then cancelling it .. or can i just leave it??? will I be charged automatically??

the iPad3 is not sim-locked She can get an iPad sim from any local carrier that supports the iPad (it must be a 4G sim however)

 

You don't need to do anything with AT&T, nor will you get billed for her use of whatever sim / account she signs up for.

Also as your shipping out of the US place ur item as a Gift
When you go to USPS otherwise your sister may receive
One heck of a Fee to receive it especially to Europe anyway Smiley Wink

Anyhow hope ur sis likes her present Smiley Happy

everyone makes mistakes

My mistake was to go with ATT on my IPAD2  Limited network.  Many areas where service is not available.  Also I selected the 250 /30 pln.  and the other day I renewed and it used 200MB in a day doing nothing but email.

 

My friends went with Verizon and are very happy.  I could sell it or give it away and change to Verizon since Apple ha it rigged so you cannot change.
