I have no cellular tab under settings/general, so have no idea how to activate a cellular data plan.  Help!


iPad, iOS 6.1

When you ordered your iPad, you had a chance to get 3G/4G data plan for your iPad. You probably didn't get 3G/4G one. You either didnt get it or didnt order from AT&T, Verizon, or Apple's site. Unfortunetly, you can't upgrade to a 3G/4G model. 3G/4G is a service through a cell phone carrier and costs montly to do. You would have to pay for internet usage.

Ah, makes sense. It was a present so no idea of what was requested. I've got a pay monthly data package from T mobile but just don't know what to do with it.

    Ok, done some more digging and understand that probably the only way to go is to use my iPhones personal hotspot to generate a wifi signal for my iPad.

    Really difficult to get this info if you don't really know what what you're looking for. So not technical minded! Thanks for your reply anyway.
