I have an iPad2 3g with at&t.

Now, Will I be able to pop another SIM into it when I travel outside the US and use the data plan available in that country/service provider?? Is the iPad2 locked to AT&T's network just like the iPhone?

It's not locked and will work on any compatible network.

Thanks! Is there a site that lists all of these compatible networks? – user1266515 Jul 5 '12 at 19:41
I think that probably counts as a different question – Clare Macrae Jul 5 '12 at 20:01
Here is the list of the iPhone providers around the world, these should carry micro SIM cards that work with iPad too: Check for prepaid data-only plans if available. SIM cards for voice+data would work too, but you won't be able to use voice services. Other GSM operators could work too, but you would need to cut a regular sized SIM card to micro SIM size. – lupincho Jul 6 '12 at 19:07
