    Does anybody know the https:// that the iPad 3G uses for the hook-up when you sign up for your AT&T plan?

    Under SETTINGS->CELLULAR DATA->VIEW ACCOUNT is where the signup screen pops up, and my guess is that this is a web form funneled in via https from att.com or att.net or something like that.

    It might be better to attack this from another angle.

    I have bought a repl@cement micro-SIM card from A T&T, and now want to get it functioning on my MacBook. It would be obvious to initialize the iPad-exclusive data plan on an iPad, and then switch the SIM over into the laptop's 3G modem.

    The problem with that plan is...I don't have an iPad.
    (And I really don't want to spend $600 on an iPad just to get its data plan, that kind of defeats the cost-saving purpose.)

    I'm wondering about booting the iPad OS on an iPhone, and then initializing the data plan in that. Has anybody seen a tutorial for getting "iPhone OS 3.2" (the iPad's operating system) onto an iPhone or iPod Touch?

    ..grammar fail. It's actually a Zoom USB 3G modem.

    How would you get the MicroSIM into an iPod touch even if it ran OS 3.2? :p

    Try posting on craigslist (sth like 'would like to try iPad 3G, $XX') and meet at a Starbucks or someplace like that and pay him a few bucks+coffee for his/her time.

    Or borrow one from your friends if any one of them has a iPad 3G.
