I'm debating whether I should renew this ipad sim or switch to a prepaid voice plan with one of the various att MVNO.
I was trying to go cheap with the 250 mb but it ran low in like 15 days and now I get automated emails saying i'm running low. Voice over 3g I think eats up about 1 MB a minute I think even with decent codec. Not to mention just leaving the phone on all the time seems to rob you of chunks of idle data if you leave a phone app in the background.
I read on some other forums there is a way to register a sim for a 2G phone and get back the unlimited data plan for 30 bucks. Anyone have some experience with that or is it a dead end?

To my knowledge, $30 unlimited plan is no more. You can get $15/200mb or $25/2gb.

Visiting the USA from Australia soon and wanting to use for my unlocked iPhone 4.
I've ordered an at&t sim from amazon which I'll cut down using a sim cutter.
My question: anyone know if only US credit cards are accepted as payment? Or are there other payment methods? ( eg recharge voucher?)

Also - you already have your SIM, but any AT&T store or reseller will likely sell you one - just say you are out of country and looking to activate your iPad.

Anybody want to PM me an iPad imei, I can't find one anywhere

Wow, so I got Rogers data to work on my iPhone after making an iPad subscription, but that's where the problems start.
No Activation Email
No Payment on my CC
Rogers Assigned a Phone Number
Now I'm afraid to use the service in fear that I'll be charged an obscene amount. I can't help but think that the iPad's "Cellular Data" tab (which is supposed to hold account information) would resolve the confusion. Is there any way to get that tab or its contents without an iPad?
I've tried the My Rogers website, but it doesn't have an account tied to the email address I used to register.
To anyone else using an iPad data plan in an iPhone, does your "Phone" tab list a phone number?
Any help would be appreciated and if we discover this is good news, I'll share how it came to this.

It seems to be normal that Rogers assigns a phone number even though it won't work.
I just tried getting this to work yesterday and was able to activate the Rogers iPad microsim and after setting the APN on my iPhone I got 3G service but it seemed the connection was restricted, always got redirected to that page in Safari that says I have to buy a data pass. And now, don't know what happened, my phone went back to no service. I had signed up with the original iPhone IMEI + iPad preactivated sim from Rogers.

It seems like all I did differently was remove the SIM, reset all settings on the iPhone, then register the correct APN again, followed by a hard reset. I popped the SIM back in and voila.
Now, have you received the confirmation email or an invoice on your credit card? I really don't know what to do about that.

Went through some troubleshooting with them and it still doesn't work.
Does the iPhone absolutely have to be unlocked? I was under the impression that if it's locked to Rogers this should work with a Rogers microsim.

So I have tried almost everything, spend hours with Rogers troubleshooting my "iPad" and still no luck. They suggested I try with a new sim card. I hope I can get this to work.

I registered a sim using a valid ipad imei on at&t, worked fine in iphone for a week, Now the sim is showing no service! Is at&t turning off ipad sims in iphones?

For reference the AT&T account management portal is: http://att.com/ipadlanding
Don't forget to cancel the account after you are done, otherwise it may auto-renew!
