Interestingly (I have low standards), I just got a shiny new Ubuntu-filled netbook with built-in 3G, so I got to experience what should have been the same procedure with a standard PAYG 3 SIM, but in my case I didn't get asked for any personal details (except for credit-cardy stuff to make it go) and I managed to find a (rather faffy) way to wrestle text messages out of my modem so that I (a) could get my password and (b) got the message telling me to visit my3 on the netbook.

There's something wrong with the world when using a SIM meant for phones in a Linux PC is much easier than using a SIM meant for iPads in an iPad.

Sigh. Someone ate my login cookie.

Seems relatively unsurprising that you managed to find a workaround on a Linux PC (a generally open-up-able and hackable computer) while I couldn't on the iPad (a sealed appliance) ... though that doesn't stop me being impressed that you managed to get an SMS out of a modem. 8-)
