I ordered a free T-mobile pre-paid PHONE micro sim off of their website. It was free with free shipping. Looks like they may be $0.99 now. http://www.t-mobile.com/landing/bring-your-own-tablet.html Put sim in Verizon iPad 3, of course. Turn off wifi. Then open any page in safari. It takes you to a T-mobile connect and activate page. Click activate and enter your email information. That's it. Good luck.
