I've been a regular lurker on MacRumors for what seems like decades; folks, I really, truly, desperately need your help right now. My partner's dealing with some severe emotional issues (her father died from cancer within six months of finding out about it, and last week she also found out that another old friend of hers was dead - and that their mutual acquaintance was using his ashes as a prop to emotionally manipulate her). Long story short, nobody's at fault, but the iPad 1 3G I had got smashed. It had that grandfathered-in unlimited data plan and I had it set up to be tethered so it was running all access to the internet in my home. I've saved the SIM card from the wreckage of the device - what, kind folks, is my best course of action? I figure I need to find an old iPad 1.0 3G and buy it used, since I'm financially strapped right now (more broke than King Midas in reverse). If anyone could point me towards a reasonably priced hand-me-down, I'd be eternally grateful. I'm also unsure how to activate the plan on a new device technically since the old one is certainly not going to boot; I'm paying the $30/month to keep it active for the time being so it doesn't disappear, even though I have no device to use it in. Sorry to be a bother, just trying to get things back on track and functional. It just couldn't come at a worse time and I'm sorry to bother you for advice and support. Thanks for all your support and such, hopefully what goes around comes around. For whatever it's worth, I live in Chapel Hill, NC 27517 in case anyone's local. Again, thanks and hope you're all having a blessed day.
