How do I update the Cellular Data Number on my iPad? Can this be done somewhere in iTunes?
Why would you want to change that number? As far as I know, that is assigned by your carrier for their data keeping purposes, and there isn't anything the user can do with it. If for some reason you want to change it, you'll have to talk to your carrier. iTunes doesn't have anything to do with it.
I'm not sure why you would need to update the carrier number. None of our apps use that number. Even iMessages using your email or your iPhone phone number.. That's if you have an iPhone. I've own several iPads since iPad 1 and never needed my iPads carrier number.
Can you tell us why you would need it changed? That might help us understand more and help you out.
The phone number is an old cell phone number and not used, I suppose i could just get a new sim card and see if it will update the setting.
Again, I don't understand why you would want to change the number -- it's not like the iPad can use that number to receive phone calls or something.
Doesn't the iPad look at that number if i were to send a message?
Nope. It looks at the Apple ID you set up in Settings > iMessage.
the number is likely tied to the SIM card, just like in a phone. a new SIM should solve the issue.
I had to get a new SIM a few days ago. After the SIM update, the cellular number tied to my iPad did not change.
No, you need to contact your carrier.
