No. Sign up only when you want/need it later on if you like.

May be different if buying inside a Verizon or AT&T store?

You can sign up whenever you want. Everything is done through the iPad in the Settings menu. In fact you could never sign up for service if you didnt want to.

for service thru ATT/Verizon? Or can you wait until you want to add it?

At purchase you do not have to sign up for any service.

----------

A question for those who purchased at a service provider...

Did they try to get you to sign up for a data plan at purchase?

Err, not really. With Verizon if you want it billed to an existing Verizon account you have to call. It only works for a direct bill credit card on the device.
