As I'm from India and bought this iPad from US. Thing is when I tried logging in with my iTunes account (which is Indian account) , it said cannot be allowed as iPad hasn't released yet here.
So I used my friend's account who is located in US and uses his account for iPhone etc, but his account got locked down..maybe the reason was different IP addresses @ same time :S.

Thought of Paypal, but my paypal has Indian Verified Address and I'm sure Apple will check that out and it shows country India and then again i wont be allowed to download iPad Apps.
What to do ? Can someone share his/her account :P

to access USA iTunes account you can follow the following instructions to get an USA iTunes account with no payment method
How to access other countries AppStore Step-by-Step Instructions!
But to buy apps you can use your India account in your computer's iTunes and sync it over to your iPad...and wait patiently for Apple to release the iTunes of iPad to your country.
I experienced the same thing as you but the above makes save me troubles from buying gift cards.iPhone 3G 3.1.3
iPad WIFI 3.2 + Myfi device
Apple just filled my future where all things are "magical".
