ipad3 - no internet from sim card



I just purchased an ipad3 wifi + gsm. Inserted a sim card. the pad recognizes the network on top lefthand corner. however, the internet through the sim card doesn't work. every time i tap on safari, a menu pops up saying " could not activate cellular data network - u are not subscribed to a cellular data service" please baffled and just not sure what to do...

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you

Re: ipad3 - no internet from sim card

have you reset the network settings? this will reload the correct carrier profile, also make sure you have the current profile, go to settings/general/about while connected via WiFi, if there's any update pending it will prompt you then

I'll ask the silly question.. Have you registered and activated the sim?
