Urgent: Ipad air from apple store, never used ATT, want to unlock

Hi, I've had this device 2-3 years, and never did use the AT%T wireless/cell function.

So I never got a phone number, or account set up.

How do I unlock it?

FWIW, I bought it in the states, but now I'm unexpectedly in South Korea, and have almost* no other hope of getting wireless service. My only option is to get a SIM card from Korea Telecom(KT), and I can only get a pre-paid one, and that means I have to have my own unlocked device.

*I've just requested unlock for an old GoPhone/AT&T Pre-Paid cheapie flip-phone I have, but I'm not positive I actually used it the minimum 6 months to qualify it for unlocking. I'll find out in 1-2 days when AT&T responds.

Help if you can, please.

 

Desperately Yours,

Norm H.

Your IPad should not be locked to AT&T.

It should be unlocked and you can use any Sim card for data .

Seriously?!

Awesome! I'm off to the KT shop immediately, to see what happens. Like a dummy I assumed...nvm, you get it.

Thank you so very much.

I'll report back on my experience.

Update:

Whelp, you may well be right, but I'm in no position to say.

KT won't sell SIMs for Ipads on a pre-paid basis. Crud.

Nonetheless, your a peach for the fast response to my question. I'll hunt around for another angle, here in ROK.

Best to you, and all the other answer-er-ers here.
