Re: Ipad

Is your iPad capable of using cellular?  If so, you need a SIM card and a data plan for the iPad. Another option is to use your phone as a wifi hotspot, provided your phone and your phone's plan allows that.

Re: Ipad

@sandblaster If your iPad does have cellular, they have a $29.99 unlimited plan now.  Slightly cheaper plans for a lot less data too.

Re: Ipad

that way to use data is set up Set Up Cellular Data and you can set up a first Cellular Data in all iPad models yourself by the following step.
go to Settings > Cellular Data > Set Up Cellular Data. ...
Choose that carrier.
Choose a plan and create an account, or add your iPad to an existing plan.
Tap Confirm.
