    I need to activate a data plan on a Micro-SIM card I picked up from AT&T, but I can't without an iPad 3G.

    Can anyone let me use theirs for 5 minutes? (It'll be exactly the same when I'm done with it, promise.)

    ohhhh only if i lived closer i would. i'm totally cool with letting a complete stranger handle a ~$900 highly desired piece of equipment. seriously, totally cool with it. too bad i live in florida. ;)

    Hey, it's only $630 if you have the cheapest one. ;)

    Not kidding at all. I'm not going to run away with it or anything. I'll even let the owner hold on to it the whole time so I can't!

    I am up in Fort Collins, and was planning on coming to Boulder this weekend. Not sure if that is soon enough or not but could help if it can wait till then :)

    maybe you could beg one of the apple store guys to use one of the demo's for that.

    worth a shot.

    Uh, maybe I'm missing something obvious, but how would that help? (Did you know "trident boulder" appears before "trident gum" on Google Suggest?)

    That would be great; I'll PM you if I can't find something sooner (looking to get the unlimited data plan and hopefully it'll still be around).

    I was actually at the Apple store today, and they didn't have any of the 3G models on display. :(

    Uh correct me if I'm wrong (but I know I am not) you had to sign up for that by 11:59pm sun night secure that. You are totally out of luck, even if you find someone.

    If you look around the forums, there are numerous reports that the unlimited plan is still available.

    Whatever.... Good luck finding a perfect stranger that does not mind being inconvenienced for absolutely no gain on their part all so you can have you precious unlimited plan.

    Well, I sure appreciate the concern, but it's always nice to think that maybe there are some people on the internet who are actually nice, even if you're not one of them yourself.

    I'm plenty nice. It's just a different perspective. Maybe it has to do with generations. I would never think to ask someone for something as trivial as this, stranger or not. Some people think that whatever they need it is everyone elses responsibility to help them. Why not buy your own? And why not buy it last weekend so you were grandfathered? Why wait till the last minute and then come up with a backdoor fix, and make it someone elses problem cause you procrastinated.
