    I have a normal T-Mobile SIM card on the family plan, so it comes with voice and data. When I put this sim card in my iPhone, voice and data works perfectly. But when I put the same SIM card in my iPad mini retina, it gets the signal and everything but when I try to open any page, it takes me to page which basically says:
    T-Mobile Connect Me
    Hey, we have expecting you...
    Activate your new device
    Get more data

    Get Started

    Once I click get started, it goes to another page which shows only OK button, nothing else on the page and this process is in a loop.

    I know I can get their data only sim, but does anyone know how I can use regular t-mobile sim in iPad?

    You can't. The data sims and phone sims are different. You need to get a mobile broadband sim card for your iPad.
