A colleague just purchased an iPad2 and went into the Wellington 2D store (Willis St) to get a microSIM with 3G of 3G data. That went okay.
But he was confused about when he would be using that data since he plans to travel outside the 2D 3G area. I said I thought then he would be on national data and since the SIM card was not on a plan it might not even work since I didn't think national data charge could be accrued.
I thought he would have to buy some national data and pointed to him the posting in this forum on how to purchase data packs on an iPad. That is well and good but there is no way for the user to know the current usage since the iPad cannot receive SMS. So does the user still have to stick the SIM into another phone to get the registration SMS and then use the web site to check on data?
Jsut wondering. Thanks
