We'll be spending some time in South Africa very soon and I'm bringing my new iPad so that I can keep in touch with my business. I had presumed that I could buy prepaid sim cards anywhere and hop onto cell networks if there is no wifi. (that's what the Apple Store clerk told me but she seemed generally disinterested...) I'm seeing some information about cutting up regular sim cards to micro-format to make them work, and difficulties encountered by non-residents in buying these 'too big anyway' cards.
I'm hoping that it is less complicated than that. Does anyone have any recent experience and/or tips? I know we'll be in more cell service areas and wifi zones.
