    I'm giving in to temptation and going to get an iPad... i'm now trying to justify spending an extra £100 on a 3G model, i'm wondering is there any Pay as you go sims.. (eg, top-up £10/month for X amount of megabytes or whatever)

    I really dont want a contract, i want to buy the iPad myself.. and then get a sim separately with no contract or obligation to pay.

    It would be great to be able to only add money on it when i know i'm going to be away from WiFi...

    If i can't then i'll just go with the wifi and live with it.

    That's an iPhone 4 sim tho? Am I missing a trick here?
    I'm sure I read somewhere on their site that it can't be used in an iPad. Did you have to jailbreak it?

    Thanks for the info - I had been using my iPhone to tether my iPad whenever I had it with me, and paying O2 £2 a day when I didn't. I've ordered one of those sims, so that should save me quite a bit.

    Do you need to put the sim in a phone to register it or anything? And do you need to manually configure the APN, or will it just work as soon as I put it in? Thanks.
