Hi all. I live in the United States currently and will be moving to Japan in two years. I want to purchase an iPad with 3G connectivity that I can use here and later in Japan. But if you want an iPad to work on a 3G network in Japan, then you have to buy it from SoftBank in Japan with a contract. At least, that's my understanding. If that's not correct, will someone please let me know? On the other hand, my understanding is that an iPad purchased from SoftBank in Japan will work in the United States if I were to switch out the microsim. If that's not correct, again please correct me. So the natural questions seem to be as follows: From the United States, can I purchase an iPad from SoftBank that will eventually work on the SoftBank network two years down the road? If possible, how would I do that? Where I would buy it from? If so, would I need to get a contract with SoftBank? I have no need for a SoftBank contract until I move to Japan in two years. Thanks for your help!
