On the email I received when I activated the plan via a borrowed unit, it said one might be able to get the plan deactivated or modified on AT&T's site. I think it requires the web browser UserAgent to be 'from an iPad' for that to work... I have Safari spoofing the iPad's UAgent, but the site doesn't change... hmm...
Anyway, this is starting to sound like something a iPad-3G owner could do to make some easy cash. Grab a lot of MicroSIMs and prepaid debit cards, activate the SIMs using the prepaid debit cards' info, and sell the package w/ instructions for a tidy profit. As long as the payment system accepts a prepaid debit card, it would be workable.Member of the hackint0sh forums.

Now's the time...
Well, the time is ticking now on this idea... new activations of the iPad data plan will become non-unlimited on June 7th. So if you're gonna try to pick yourself up some cheap unlimited prepaid data, then now's the time to try.
I might actually look into buying up a bunch of [Micro]SIMs and doing the prepaid debit card--->activate plan---->sell on eBay/whathaveyou plan now. Anyone possibly interested in buying one of these 'kits'?
I think at&t's changes to the iPad plan will klll iPad-3G's sales a tonload (so we might actually see some on shelves... LOL). Why pay for a AT&T 3G-capable unit (with a $25/2GB capped data plan) when someone could go buy a WiFi iPad, cheap 3G->WiFi router and a cheap T-Mobile WebConnect card and do unlimited for about the same cost?Member of the hackint0sh forums.

It would be nice if you can get one of those ipad plan on Ebay before June 7 for a deal of course and I'll thank you a bunch!

so whats new with this scheme?

However, AT&T has gotten rid of the unlimited plan. I'm not sure just how long 2GB would last you.
EDIT: If you're using an iPhone 4 (or iPhone 3GS with a microsim adapter) you can use the app Talkatone with Google Voice. However, this also uses the Google chat calling feature that Google implemented late last year. Google has only promised that this will be free through 2011.

Unlim everything doesn't have to cost more than $29.99
Note: VOIP does not work smoothly in areas of less than at least three or four bars. Texting via GV works beautifully in all types of reception.

P.S. Account management is possible online (which earlier required an iPad, or a settings.app component import to the iPhone), now all you need for this is a temporary iPad in which to activate a sim, and you're good to go!

I only know of this for AT&T, I'm not up to date on Canadian Cell providers at alll, sorry bud
Now here's an idea:
Bringing this iPad sim card into an AT&T store and asking them to transfer the plan onto a pre-paid sim card. Adding minutes and voila, a prepaid-data sim? Would this even be a remote possibility?

Whats the update on this subject?
BTW, does anyone know how to hack a 3G USB stick SIM card to work in an iPhone?
So far, I've used Apple's configuration utility to change the APN settings of an Orange SIM card and I can access the internet on the iPhone but cannot call or send SMS.
