Canadian traveling with 3G Ipad2

Hi.

So, I want to access AT&T 3G network when I travel to USA next month from Canada. I heard there are two obstacles. Firstly, there is the question about obtaining a SIM card. That seems easy - just go to an Apple Store an ask for one or buy one. Now, for the data plan, I heard that is a problem with a Canadian Address. Anyone recently been through this  - what is acceptable? I heard it is possible to buy a prepaid VISA giftcard and use that with a hotel address and will work fine - anyone do this recently and did it work?? If I have the SIM card, do I need to be in AT&T store or can I activate the card from back in Canada from the ipad directly, as long as I have the prepaid American VISA card??

Any advice for me??

Thanks

 

Shawn

Hi Shawn,
Buy a prepaid VISA /mastercard giftcard and use that with a hotel address and it will work fine Smiley Happy
But first,Go to AT&T store and get a Micro Sim for your ipad.
You CANNOT activate the SIM card inside Canada Smiley Sad
Good luck .
