    Hi
    I have recently moved to quite a rural area and I am using a sim card in a dongle in my laptop for my internet access.

    I would like to use the sim card in my ipad, my question is, do I just take the sim out of the dongle and put it in the ipad?

    I am cautious because I don't want to break anything and would rather know that I was doing the right thing instead of guessing.

    Thank you :)

    First off, it depends if your iPad is GSM or CDMA. A GSM iPad does not accept CDMA Sim cards. Other wise, I think you would be fine, transferring the Sim.

    CDMA doesn't use SIM cards. GSM and LTE do.

    This is a Verizon iPad Mini. I does have a Sim slot.

    Thus because iPad Mini uses LTE therefore it has a sim card slot.

    You can easily do that. But I recommend you to transfer to Wifi Browsing. Fast & Flexible.
