Just to clarify though can the sim from the original iPad 3G be put into the new iPad to transfer the service or are the two sims different. I would like to put the sim from the new iPad into the old one as well since my wife will be using it.

I'm going to assume, unless we get different official info, that the sims are different. I've read a post where previously someone just went to their iPad account online and changed the IMEI and the other number to the new device which made the account transfer for them. When they restarted the original device they got the message telling them that they had not signed up for data on that device, so it appears making that change online also resets the original sim in the first device.

That's my impression as well. I'm going to assume the 2 sims are not interchangeable. My wife is going to use the "old" iPad when I activate the new one. So I'm hoping that changing the proper numbers on my account will transfer my plan while allowing my wife to get her own plan with the old sim.

Folks, just wanted to let everyone know - I've just transferred the unlimited plan from an iPad 2 (which I had previously transferred from a first generation iPad) to my new iPad 3rd gen that arrived today . It worked fine - I've now got "DOM Unlimited Data LTE" for $29.99/month.
I'm a happy bunny
