Isn't buying from US or overseas have telco-locked to eg: AT&T?
ipad was not locked. iPad 2 also not locked.

the main difference is AT&T is GSM and Verizon is CDMA.

so if u purchase AT&T model, u r safe. if u get Verizon model.. u r screwed.

Yep, Verizon's iPad 2 doesn't have a SIM slot, cause it's using CDMA.

Just get the ATT version, pop in a M1/SingTel/StarHub 3G SIM card, and you're good to go.

For those with money to throw, u can get the ipad 2 from SL shops. The parallel importers r at it again - selling at ridiculous mark-ups; saw quite a number over the weekend

Yeah, wait for singapore release and pay with 0% plan.

I'm looking at 32GB, however deciding to move to up WiFi 64GB or 32GB 3G.

Same amount of money but different specs.

For info.

Even with a US credit card and a US ship-to address (friend), Apple Online Store is now rejecting such orders on the basis of suspected international forwarder due to ship-to name is different from billing name.
