How do I change phone number associated with my iPad?

iPad 2 Wi-Fi + 3G, iOS 6.1.3

    Though an iPad with 3G does technically have a SIM with a number, it has nothing to do with the iPad. Are you asking about a number associated with you iMessage account.



    If so, check in Settings > Messages > Send & Receive

    for iMessage go to Settings>Messages>Send and Recieve at you can change to recieve or send from your apple id or phone number from here.

    Obviously you must have an iPhone in order to associate the phone number with the FaceTime and Messages apps on your iPad. You haven't clearly stated what you want to do other than associate a phone number, so I assume these are the two apps that you want to associate the phone number with.


    If you are unable to add the phone number in the settings in either or both of these apps, you may have to sign out of both apps on the Phone and the iPad - and then sign in again on both devices in order to use the phone number for FaceTime and Messages on the iPad.


    This kb article explains how to do this in more detail.

    What are you talking about? What does this mean? If you mean that you can't add another iPhone number, please read my post. If you follow the link that I posted, it explains how to do it.
