    The sim card is in my iPad Air and I don't know how exactly I can activate it?

    1). Go to SETTINGS
    2). press cellular data
    3). Turn ON cellular data
    4). It will prompt for initiation of service. Have a cc/debit card handy.
    5). Enjoy!

    Yeah that's what I thought, but a window pulls up and says the service isn't available...

    Try turning off WiFi and then trying. If this is with T-Mobile, you have to have WiFi off.

    If you had WiFi off while getting the error, try turning it on.

    I get nothing :(

    When I go to View Account in Settings, I get prompted with a window saying this "This option is not available for your service profile. To view the latest products and services from Bell, visit bell.ca" ?

    I would try opening the bell.ca website on your iPad browser. It should give you the option to sign up for a data plan through that website. If that doesn't work possibly has a bad SIM and bring it into a bell store.

    I don't know anything about Canadian providers, but that error sounds a lot like the SIM isn't provisioned correctly for an ipad.

    How did you get the SIM? Already inside a brand new ipad, a new unused SIM obtained from Bell or elsewhere, a SIM borrowed from a phone, something else?

    I'd suggest first talking to Bell, ensure the SIM is provisioned properly on their side before being concerned about the ipad.
