    So the idea is that in general grandfathered iPad 3g data plan graduate to Unlimited LTE for no additional cost?

    It wasn't clear whether you are just using 3g with the new iPad or you are grandfathered into unlimited LTE.

    Yes. No matter the speed of the connection we get unlimited data.

    It's good to be grandfather.

    I have two bars of LTE and it's still twice as fast as my five bars of 4G. Did you speed test both?

    How dou activate lte?

    I just switched my sim and it only gets 4g - despite being in a lte coverage zone.

    Do I need to do more than put my unlimited sim from my iPad 2 in?

    Ummmm, your are not supposed to switch sims.

    Put back the sim that came with the new iPad, go into General Settings / Cellular Data / View Account. Click on the "Existing User?" option, sign in, and select the unlimited plan. Done. All the imei updates are handled automatically for you.

    Yes, it is that easy.

    Poster above is correct: you don't switch sim cards. Just transfer service via the iPad.

    Awesome! It worked!

    Thank you so much. 16mb down from my bedroom. Yes!

    Guess I will keep the att unlimited, and turn in the verizon one. I don't want to lose unlimited - if I knew they were canceling or throttling it in the near future, i would switch to verizon for my city coverage, but hopefully att won't and they will continue to build out their network.

    Thank you again!
