travelling with iPad2 3g (from US) - are pre-paid micro sims available?

Hi all,

I'll be in Switzerland for the summer and normally bring my unlocked iPhone to use with a local pre-pay card from Orange.

I'm looking to buy an iPad2 but stuck on choosing between the wifi and 3g model. I will have access to wifi at my bf's home, and along the lakeside in Geneva and certain hotspots, but I feel it would be very useful to be able to connect anywhere, anytime.

Is anyone aware if pre-pay data micro-sim cards are available for purchase from any provider? I am also aware I could buy one of those sim card cutters, but I'm fabulously clumsy and would probably end up messing up the card if I tried modifying it myself

Sunrise and Orange should be able to provide them. Swisscom probably, too, but at higher cost.

I have the 3G ipad- 1st edition from the states, AT&T provider. It obviously doesn't work here in Switzerland, does the iPad 2 work with a sim card? The original iPad model doesn't have the sim card avaability,
I have the iPad 3G but only use it for traveling to and from and visiting the states and have the iPhone for use while in CH. Your probably better off using the iPhone w sim card while in Switzerland and getting the 3G for around the house cafe's etc.... Good luck!
