    So I'm in San Francisco right now and need to get a microSIM for my iPad.

    I have done a search and apparently one can walk into an AT&T store and purchase one for $16, but I went into an AT&T store yesterday and they told me I have to order one online (?).

    Anyone know if they've changed their policies or something so that you can't buy one in a store, or if that store was wrong?

    I do have a US credit card so activating it won't be an issue, just need to get the SIM.

    I would try going to another store. A few months ago they just gave me one when I went in and asked for it.

    Try an Apple Store. I'm sure there are plenty in San Francisco.

    Got one from an Apple store for free, no questions asked. I basically just told them I bought a used iPad from Amazon and it didn't come with a SIM card

    Tried another AT&T store today and was met with the same 'you need to order one online' spiel.

    Didn't know you could get one from an Apple store- will ask there tomorrow.

    Thanks for the advice!

    Walked into an AT&T store on Thursday and they set me up for free. For some strange reason, I haven't had to pay anything yet either even though it's working.
