    I would like to sell my current iPad Air on eBay and upgrade to the iPad Pro. I own the iPad Air with cellular and it has been activated on my T-Mobile account. Should I sell the iPad Air without the SIM card? Or is there a way to wipe the SIM card/remove the device from my account? I want the next owner to be able to set up the cellular connection like I did originally. Thanks for your help!

    Never sell with a SIM card left installed. If you really want to be a good seller, go to Apple Store and ask for a new Apple SIM and put it in after wiping the device. That way the new owner gets to set it up like new.

    I don't suggest you to sell it with the sim card. I totally agree with @iPhone1

    An Apple SIM will not work on an iPad Air, only on the iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, or iPad mini 3 or 4. You can either get a new T-Mobile SIM card, ($4.99 at BestBuy) deactivate your current SIM and remove it from your account through T-Mobile, or sell the iPad without a SIM card.
