I got my iPad 3G few days ago, i didn't start up with 3G service till i wanted it today.

I signed up and used a pre-paid visa (one of those gift visas) i don't have a physical credit card atm.

FOUR times trying to get 3G service and it fails each time, i follow instructions on the web about it and still fails. I dunno what to do i'm just frustrated.
My provider is Rogers and really its getting me annoyed, should i call them ?

Not sure if this is the problem but when I tried to get my iPad to work in 3G, I had problems with it.

I called Orange and eventually it was fixed when I went into Settings, Reset and then reset the Network.

Since then it has worked.

Worth a try - hope it works for you too

resolved. Rogers just hates pre-paid gift visas, i'll be getting a re-loadable visa soon to try out.

Apple support rules and provider support sucks.
