Apple iPad 3G data plans - micro-SIM UK

With the impending release of the Apple iPad – 3G operators have been busy unveiling their 3G micro Sim packages for the device.

The iPad comes in 6 different models. Three of the new devices have Wi-Fi + 3G capability.  A normal mobile SIM card will not work as the iPad requires a micro-SIM card.

These are not long term contracts like with mobile phones, you can choose to pay a fixed price per day, week or month of use.  If you order one of the Wi-Fi + 3G iPad’s then it’s as simple as ordering your relevant free SIM card and putting it in to the device.

02, Vodafone and Orange have all unveiled details of their price plans.

    Ordered my iPad, and now ordered my 3G sim.

    I’d imagine most people know what the best coverage is in the areas they are likely to use it.

    Personally I’ve got the Vodafone package. The 3Gb per month is the most reasonable. Free sim and a rolling 1 month deal.

    I’ve got an iPhone so you can tell from the Settings menu what kind of data usage you are likely to use. I am sure I won’t ever use anywhere near 3G in a month, but you never know how much video/TV you will use.

    I’m looking forward to it. No more squinting at my phone on the train home!
