Red face LTE not working on AT&T iPad Mini

Hi everyone,
I was hoping someone could help me figure this out.

I have an AT&T LTE sim that has data and voice on it. This sim works fine in my AT&T iPad 3 - LTE works fine on the iPad 3 too. The sim also works fine with LTE in my unlocked iPhone 5.

However, when I put it inside my AT&T iPad Mini, it doesnt work at all. I used the online APN changer and switched the APN settings to AT&T HSPA+. That made the SIM work in the iPad Mini, but with 4G only. I have tried changing the APN settings several times over, but I still can't get LTE on the iPad Mini with the SIM.

So I'm confused - shouldnt the AT&T iPad Mini be unlocked and work just like the bigger AT&T iPad?

As an FYI - I tried the same SIM in my friend's iPad Mini and had the same results

Any help is appreciated

Thanks!

Does it work if you use AT&T (Broadband) instead?

iPad Mini] LTE not working on AT&T iPad Mini

I had same issue with my mini. What worked for me was putting that active simcard into the iPad mini and then restoring it via iTunes as new which will register the iPad to that sim card. After restore as new, worked flawless.

Is the mini using the newest sim card design?

So I tried changing the APN to AT&T (Broadband) and that didnt work. I then switched back to AT&T HSPA+ and then updated to iOS 6.1 and now LTE is working! W00t! And wow, what a difference - the speeds are so much faster!

Thanks for the help everyone!
