Cellular iPad

MicKatMom 413 838 October 19, 2016 at 09:57 AM
My husband won an iPad Air 2 from U.S. Cellular. It has the U.S. Cellular sim card taped to the outside of the box.

He's planning to sell it but we don't know how to list it. Is there an Apple sim card in it already? Will it work with all carriers? Sprint and Verizon? Is there a way to tell? My iPad is cellular from Verizon but I never had to insert a sim card, so I am clueless here.

Thanks for the help!

Your Verizon ipad probably came with the sim preinstalled. It should be removable physically.

On the new Ipad I would find out if it comes with service like does it have $100 preloaded on the sim? Customer service should be able to look up the Sim Cards serial number and tell you more, A store might be easier if they give you any trouble over the phone.

As far as if the tablet will work on other carriers I am not sure.

Can you post the part number from the box? all but verizon ipads have an apple sim pre-installed. You can narrow it down by that part number.

But at the end of the day it doesn't really matter. iPads are unlocked and will work on any carrier who's frequency band they support (all 4 in the US). So just sell it as a cellular ipad.

It says MGGX2LL/A iPad Air 2 Wi-Fi Cellular 16GB Space Gray at the bottom of the back of the box. I was looking at pictures of them on eBay and they all seemed to also say "Apple SIM" on the same line. This one doesn't say that, so I'm thinking it's not in there.

Either way, what you have there is a 16GB ipad air 2 wifi+cellular.
the apple sim isn't really a selling point, just a convenience. you can still go to any carrier and get a sim card and pop it in.
