    Bought a ipad 4th wi-fi + 4G AT&T from ebay ! I never used the 4G service just bought it just in case because I use to be with AT&T for my iphone, But now I wanted to know if this is locked to AT&T if so can it be unlocked ?

    Historically, all iPads come unlocked. The SIM is provided as a courtesy.

    Didn't know that ! I might use it one day but probably as a teether.... I'm looking into the Googles- Project Fi

    never the less it's good to know it's unlocked !

    Thanks !

    No problem. Here's a link with details; while it shouldn't be locked, that doesn't mean it will automatically work with ALL carriers worldwide as carriers use different LTE bands, so it's best to familiarize yourself with the details: http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/ipad/ipad-faq/ipad-design-info-font-where-to-buy-unlocked.html
