I have my iPad 2 with me in Berlin, and bought a prepaid micro-SIM card at a Deutsche Telekom store. The card cost 10 euros, and I gather it includes two days access, and I can add 5 euros per each day of additional access that I want. So far it's working great.
The only thing I'm not clear on is where/how to add this additional time. The staff in the store spoke vastly better English than my German, but this point remained fuzzy, and this is the first time I've bought a SIM card. Is this generally done via a menu on the iPad? Or via a website?
I made a run from central Delaware - thru downtown Wilmington and Philadelphia - up the PA Turnpike for about 100 miles. My Navigon GPS was acting up, so I had my wife turn on Maps.what a pain! Here I was going thru the center of some of the most dense humanity on the Eastcoast and I was either getting No Service or Frickin' E ..the well name EDGE. "The edge always the farthest from you.But it could be the car?! Does your iPad work in a car?
So up until recently I've been able to buy an itunes card instead of credit card. My card was stolen years ago so I no longer add my card. What's the point of having itunes cards when you can't use it? How can I bypass adding a credit card?
Are there any pre-paid cell phone cards that work with the Ipad?I will hardly ever need 3G. Buying another plan doesn't make sense.However, buying a prepaid minutes (or gigabytes), to use now and then makes a lot of sense.Do you have know of any solutions like this?
whats our strategies for international trips? People in Europe reporting successful result with cutdown sims so You should be able to use prepaid sims with data capabilities if you cut it down to micro sim size right? Any idea, reports for international data use without dealing with crazy expensive AT&T international data plan? I'm thinking maybe something like go-sim would work?
Has anyone run out of data, hit the pop up to purchase another block of data, and then still had their plan "renew" at the 30 day expiration of the previous data block despite plenty of time and data left on the new block (and the new block supposedly resetting your "renewal" date)?It happened to me, customer service is a joke. They just keep repeating random babbling words back to me. Eventually after two levels of reps saying "well you made a feature change and that's why you were charged again" and "maybe you processed the payment incorrectly" I got a supervisor that says I must have added the data wrong and she will issue a courtesy refund of the extra $50.On a prepaid iPad plan how exactly do I add it wrong? I run out and it says I've run out and asks if I want to buy more or wait out my month.

Sep 13, 2013
I have just been given an iPad for work so I intend to sell my now not required iPad. I have on it some prepaid apps that I would like on the new iPad. Is there a way I can transfer them or reload onto the new iPad without having to pay again?
Setting Up Credit Card Information In ITunes Into ‘None For Downloading Free Apps From ITunes Store Into IPad 2
Oct 15, 2012
As the iTunes Store is not available in India, I am planning to set up an iTunes account of another country for downloading useful apps into my iPad 2. But, I dont want to enter the credit card information while creating the account as I prefer only free apps. Is it possible to set the information as ‘None in iTunes?
I was trying to download the new IOS5 onto my iPad but it said I should put things in my library or I will lose them? I did a sync for my books,etc but it said nothing about syncing your prepaid games? will I lose them in the download?
Activating Verizon Service - Service Failed To Activate And Gave System Errors And Activation Errors
Mar 16, 2012
When I went to create my Verizon prepaid Account through the cellular data settings screen, the service failed to activate and gave system errors and activation errors. When I called Verizon, they said that my sim was dead and I should go to a Verizon store to have it replaced. Unfortunately, when I went there, my only option was to get a new sim card activated on a normal Verizon account rather than prepaid...
Now, I'm happy to have service, and it's still month to month with no activation, but I am not able to get the $20 plan. A little disappointed, but not enough to switch to AT&T.
