    I am disappointed with the AT&T coverage on my iPad.

    I read online you can buy a 3G sim card from a Straight Talk phone to get their 3G plan. Of course you would have to cut the sim down to fit, but it works. This seems OK, since I use a Straight Talk phone and no matter where I am, I get reception.

    I was wondering, are there any other GSM carriers out there that people use with their iPads, in the US?

    It's interesting you mention this. I was just thinking about this the other day. For starters you will need to jailbreak and carrier unlock the iPad. If that is even possible then after that there should be no issue.

    Not to answer you question with a "go look somewhere else" but I believe the best info for this could be found within the jail breaking community. Good luck with it and if you are able to do it, post it here! I'd love to know!

    I remember hearing that all iPads came carrier-unlocked from the factory.

    You know, now that you mention that I think you are right! I'm going to do some digging in the next day or so. See what I can find out about this!

    Hehe, it is totally possible. All you need is to buy a $100 dollar Straight Talk phone with a 3G sim card, take the sim card out, cut it to the size of the AT&T sim card and replace it in your iPad.

    After that it's $45 a month for unlimited 3G internet, however I also read that they will cancel your account if they notice anything weird.
