    I just snatched a 3rd gen iPad 64GB for $300 on eBay and noticed its not just the Wifi version. It has a SIM card slot on the side, though no SIM card was included and am wondering how i can find out which cell phone company it belong to.. or if i can walk into sprint, verizon or ATT and get any of their services?

    I suppose i'll ask again seeing as I couldn't locate a solid answer elsewhere.

    Can I add any US carriers SIM to my 3rd Gen iPad seeing as it didn't include one? Or is it tied down to a specific carrier? Or is there complicated work down the line considering the circumstance?

    i appreciate the reply!

    edit: Verizon!

    Am I strictly limited to Verizon as my only carrier?

    All iPads come unlocked. Though I'm not sure if you will be able to access LTE on ATT's network

    T-Mobile or ATT will work, but only on 4G.
