In the US, iPads are carrier locked. In Canada, the iPads are supposedly unlocked, likewise in Europe? Is this true? Does it mean that for US users close to the border, they should cross to Canada to get their iPads? Is this the same for the upcoming iPad 2?

No iPad's are carrier locked... on any iOS version 3.2 to 4.2.1. The iPad baseband 6.15.00, they use is the same one the Dev-Team has been using to unlock peoples phones who updated (or phone that came with) a locked baseband.

Rogers will unlock it for you, assuming you pay the contract up front.

I'm sure they will unlock your iphone but he's asking ipad. :)

Oh and when you buy you iPad at say Best Buy (like I did) they will ask you what provider your on and sell you that SIM card.. So that would mean that it's not locked to any carrier, if you can put whatever SIM card into it.

KK, that's right. iPads are not locked, you just have to get/make a micro-sim.
