    Hi, I live in Canada. So I got my iPad 3G and I cut and inserted my sim card in it. And put in the APN settings. Internet.fido.ca, then fido, fido as password. And now I goto safari and try to browse on any page it brings me to the Rogers website :-S. How do I get past this??

    ipcc is carrier settings that can be installed via iTunes. Search on this site for your carrier + ipcc and you will find one ready to go.

    It's going to take them longer than a few days to get it patched.

    if your trying with iPad 3g then your device identification does not match what Fido has you should uninstall ipcc or whatever you installed and try again with APN settings, maybe it will help.
    i had the same problem with my iphone when i activated data plan but fido did not activated until the next day i ordered it so i used APN with my iphone (jailbroken) and it works.

    Good luck

    I see .. Well before i installed he ipccni was trying with just pan settings ... Wap.fido.ca, Internet.fido.ca, Internet.com etc. And I still had the same problem. How do I uninstall the ipcc? And what should i call fido tomorrow and say? I mean the data plan is on the account associated with the sim card that is in the iPad ....

    Just got an iPad 3G in Seattle and I have a USB 3G Novatel with Fido. I cut out the SIM and inserted on the iPad. It shows service but I have problems with the APN. internet.fido.ca with fido fido kind of works but keeps redirecting it to a rogers portal with error 404 This page can not be found. Any tips? Why is this?
    Did you get your iPad working?
