    Has anyone received their 3G iPads after June 6th and activated the unlimited plan?

    I'm just wondering how AT&T and or the iPad will know when you go in to activate the data plan that you qualify for the $29.99 unlimited if you purchased by June 6th and received it after due to back order. I know to activate on the iPad but I don't know if or how the activation screen may have changed on June 7th.

    The Apple site says for orders placed by June 6th and AT&T told me I will qualify but I have no idea what hoops will be jumped through to get it to work.

    Good to know. I ordered mine on the 4th and it isn't scheduled to ship until the 18th.

    Thanks for the responses all. I won't get mine until the 24th but I wanted to see what kind of experience other users were having.

    Did you order the iPad from Apple, or did you walk into a store and buy it?

    Thanks! I went to Best Buy and bought one after seeing your message. I was able to set up the unlimited plan also.

    I registered just so that I can let everyone know that ipad 3g which I just bought from BestBuy this evening was still allowed register for unlimited plan at 10pm PST as of June 9th.

    I was wondering until I get the confirmation message from AT&T because of stories like this:

    Anyway, if you care about the unlimited plan, don't wait.

    Well I'm crossing my fingers since mine won't arrive until June 24th. I hope I won't have the same problem as the person in the thread you posted AppleHater.

    I called around to Best Buy and Apple stores all around my area and no one had 3Gs by June 6th so I ordered online. I didn't want to take a chance of waiting until after and grabbing one if it ever came into Best Buy to see if activation would work.
