I live in Europe and I want to purchase an ipad mini online from the US site and have it shipped within the US. Is there a way to do this without having to chose a cellular service provider or should i just chose anyone at random and then just use my own provider in my country of residence.  WIll the ipad work or will the settings be such so that the ipad will be locked?  I do not see any options for buying the ipad without a service provider...

    Just pick one, they are all unlocked and will work with any carrier.


    The only drawback is with the AT&T model. If you decide to someday activate it on Verizon, they will not be able to since they only activate devices that they have a record of (IMEI).


    If you ever need the warranty for a repair, you would need to return to the US to have it serviced.
