    Don't know about the new iPad, but the last one could not use 3G from T-mobile due to it not having the correct frequency. Don't know if this has been fixed or not.

    If the issue with T-Mobile was simply a matter of incompatible radio frequency, that has nothing to do with unlock. That's a modem issue.
    OP: check the frequencies used by ipad. Compare them to your carrier. If they're compatible, then you should be fine.

    I was told it was due to T-Mobile not having micro-SIM cards. You can file them down to make them work.

    It (the iPad 1) can work on their network, but only for EDGE data, not 3G.
