Currently Being ModeratedMar 16, 2011 7:42 AM (in response to nixxon2000)Have you tried doing a Reset Network Settings? Settings>General>Reset>Reset Network Settings. Give it a shot. It may fix your issue permanently.MacBook Pro late 2008, 2.4 Ghz, 4 GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.6), iPhone 4, iPad Wifi, Time Capsule
Currently Being ModeratedMar 16, 2011 7:59 AM (in response to ClayG)Did that already. I actually spent 2hrs at the Genius Bar last night. I was able to duplicate the problem. They have no idea why its doing that.
They did everything, re-provisioned the account, updated the software (twice I might add), REPLACED THE IPAD 2! They think its an IOS issue.
If you are using 3G then to go wifi, Turn off the IPad, wait a few minutes, turn it on it says searching/no service.IPAD 2, iOS 4, Verizon Ipad 2
Currently Being ModeratedMar 16, 2011 8:05 AM (in response to nixxon2000)I don't have the 3G model, so I can't test it out myself, but this sounds bad. If it still did after a replacement of the device, than that points either to a bug in the OS, or to a problem with Verizon.MacBook Pro late 2008, 2.4 Ghz, 4 GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.6), iPhone 4, iPad Wifi, Time Capsule
Currently Being ModeratedMar 16, 2011 3:37 PM (in response to nixxon2000)Same problem here, was not sure if I should exhange (until I read this thread).
Easy way to duplicate: turn off cellular, then reboot normally. 3G will not come back regardless if switched on or off. Only way to turn back on is to 1) switch cellular back to 'on' and 2) reboot. All time consuming...
Tried restoring, didn't help......Macbook Air 13.3

Turn off Wifi then turn on Cellular. Turn on Wifi - turn off Wifi - Cellular should then work.

Currently Being ModeratedMar 16, 2011 5:39 PM (in response to nixxon2000)This is my first post on ANY forum, but I've been reading about this problem since Friday when these iPad2's came out and I finally found the solution after 2 calls to Verizon and hours on the phone. I finally found a rep that knew what he was doing and it was fixed in a matter of minutes... here's the deal:
Go to: SETTINGS>GENERAL>ABOUT and then touch the CARRIER line which probably says Verizon 10.0. When you touch it, it should display a PRL number, like 5XXXX. When I did this, my number was 0. That was the problem.
The Tech had me back up the iPad then go to GENERAL>RESET>ERASE ALL CONTENT AND SETTINGS. It will ask you a couple times if you're sure and just hit ERASE both times.
**WARNING - THIS WILL DELETE EVERYTHING SO BE SURE YOU HAVE IT BACKED UP**
The iPad will then reboot itself and go back to the screen where it tells you to connect it to iTunes. Connect it, in iTunes click restore from previous backup, choose the latest one, let it restore then Sync. While it's restoring/syncing, you will see the VERIZON pop up in the top left corner and you will be in business!
If you want to verify, go back to settings>general>about and touch the carrier to see the PRL number has changed.
Hope this helps save someone same time.

Currently Being ModeratedMar 16, 2011 5:44 PM (in response to ethynol)I tried that already. All the numbers matched with verizon. After 2 1/2 hours with verizon the said it was an Apple issue.
As I said I have had the iPad replaced already. So far I have been all day without 3G service. I have another apple appointment tomorrow morning. I will post more info after words.IPad 2, iOS 4
Currently Being ModeratedMar 16, 2011 6:03 PM (in response to nixxon2000)Ok I just want to clarify to make sure these aren't two seperate issues
On my issue, when 3G is turned off followed by unit, it doesn't come back regardless of toggle but CAN comeback if you leave it in the on switch, then reboot
Yours sounds like it's not coming back AT ALL.
Two seperate issues? Have you tried leaving Cellular in "On" followed by a reboot?Macbook Air 13.3
Currently Being ModeratedMar 16, 2011 6:21 PM (in response to dtsguy)No it sounds like the same issue. If I mess with it enough it can come back but there is no sure fire way to do it. It might take 4 reboots for it to work, but, honestly in do not have time for that. With the money i spent on it I should not have to either.IPadv2, iOS 4
Currently Being ModeratedMar 16, 2011 7:04 PM (in response to nixxon2000)Having this same problem on my verizon 3G iPad 2 ... My wife's iPad did this today, but not as often as mine... Dissatisfied !
***** because I want ATT to begin now I have this problem. The first time I resolved this by resetting the iPad to the original settings, loosing all apps. The second time, just minutes ago I was able to fix with a reboot. Wife's was resolved with a reboot but no one wants to have to reboot their device all the time, let alone reset and loose all my settings!iPad 2, iOS 4
Currently Being ModeratedMar 16, 2011 8:35 PM (in response to nixxon2000)I'm having a similar issue, except mine always says "roaming". Nothing I've tried so far gets me to Verizon. Occasionally I'll toggle airplane mode and 3G on/off and Verizon pops up but only for a moment them it switches back to roaming.2.8 dual quad macPro, Mac OS X (10.6), 7GB ram x1900 FCS 3 2TB RAID 0
Currently Being ModeratedMar 17, 2011 1:50 PM (in response to austin m)Finally, someone with the same issue. Seems to work just fine, but yeah, says Roaming... Said Verizon until I activated, now says roaming even though I am on the Verizon network.iMac, iPad2, iOS 4
