Apple illustrates how to get 30 days of prepaid 3G wireless on the iPad.
The only payment options shown — and none are explicitly mentioned in the text — are these:
That’s a big personal disappointment.
I was really hoping there would also be the option of using iTunes Gift Cards or stopping into an AT&T Store (which are all over the place in NYC) to buy a prepay card.
Apple does explicitly state:
There’s no need to visit a store
But what about people who want to? Or even have to?
Aside from AT&T Stores being all over, so are iTunes Gift Cards. There’s even a local supermarket that sells them! And they’re available at most of the pharmacy chains (Duane Reade, CVS, etc) around here.
