Just got my iPad 3G running on the XT network, runs great, seems pretty fast and so far good coverage (no VFNZ 3G where I live)
I even managed to fashion a micro sim to sim converter so I can pop the XT card back into the T-Stick if I want to use my MacBook on 3G... all works sweet!!  

XT seems to be the network of choice for the 3G configuration in the iPad.  Also worked on 2degrees and seemed pretty fast for a 2G/Edge connection.   

3G iPad is definitely the model to get!

Can you purchase these without a SimLock or have you JailBroken it?

iPad's are not carrier locked at all.

The only problem with them outside the USA (at the moment) is the Appstore will not work without a USA itunes account (but you can sync via itunes on your PC/MAC)

Where do you live cause I bet there is 3G coverage its just your device does not support the band 3G is on

yeah, the iPad 3g is 850/2100, so would only utilise 2100 on VFNZ, as they are 900/2100. XT is 850/2100

I'd be surprised if there was no VF 2100 coverage in an area where 2degrees was providing EDGE service...

Hey downhill I'm interested to know what shows up under Settings -> Cellular Data. This is where you go if you're in the US and want to buy one of the plans, and can check your usage as well.

Is there anything in here relevant to NZ users? Are you able to post some screenshots?

Cheers.
