    There is only one model for each iPad yet Apple packages them set up for specific carriers. Has anyone say for example bought and iPad mini with Retina for another vendor then inserted an ATT SIM into it to see if it would work on ATT's network?

    Yes. I posted the following earlier today in another thread.

    BTW it isn't new, I'm using an ATT SIM in my Verizon iPad 3 right now. Just that now there's just the one model vs a couple with a lot of band overlap.

    people on the net say that if you take a at&t, verizon, tmobile, ipad air to sprint they make you go through red tape before activating the sim, like having you send them a receipt saying you purchased the item from the apple store.

    that is the only exception i have read about the sims

    Well I found a T-Mobile Space Grey 128GB model and shoved my AT&T SIM into it and poof - I'm all good and I'm on my unlimited plan again. Warm fuzzies from Texas. :)
