Okay so I got the 3G ipad today and synced it to my MBP. I decided to to restore my ipad to my last iphone sync on this computer which was done in October of Last year. I have not setup or activated 3G service on my ipad, however while syncing the At&T logo and signal strength bars appeared during the sync. Now I have 3G access, but I don't think I should.... I never paid but oh well. Yes this sounds unbelievable, but I am somehow managing to access 3G without even setting it up. It might be important to note that the backup I used was from a Jailbroken iphone. If anyone else can test this to confirm it would be greatly appreciated.
