We are going to the US shortly for 3-4 weeks and I am hoping I arrange some sort of prepaid data for my iPad when we get there. Does anyone have any knowledge or experience on this - it's a bit hard to determine whether such schemes exist by looking at the telcos' websites. I will need to buy a sim card for the iPad - I don't currently use one in the iPad at home.
