    Guys, things are ****ed.

    I've searched google and no luck.

    can someone please explain to me why my iPad 3rd generation WiFi + Cellular identifies as iPad 3rd gen WiFi?

    i checked the model on the back cover: A1430 and the internet says its a WiFi + Cellular.

    but when i connect to iTunes it identifies as model type 3,1 which is the iPad 3rd gen WiFi.

    What is going on? how is this possible?

    I've inserted a sim card in the tray, NOTHING.

    still shows that damn "iPad" in the top left corner next to wifi connection.

    Is it connected with a cell data plan? If not, it won't show any cell model details.
