    First diagnosis step: visual inspection. Does the device has a SIM slot ?
    If yes: maybe update to proper firmware
    If no: go back to seller

    When I watched once more your screenshots I believe you have a wifi-only model at hand.

    I think I would take it back too the seller and get a refund and if you really want a iPad mini I would get a iPad mini 4 The iPad mini 1st gen is really old now you be March happier with the mini 4 Or if you can wait I would get the air 2 or wait in tell what Apple has in store and get iPad pro So if you can return the iPad mini why you still have a ch too do it and get your self a iPad mini 4

    If money wasn't a factor thats probably what they would have done in the first place. Not everyone has lots of disposable income just laying around. It would be interesting to see what you would recommend if this was a car forum.
