    Trying to setup my sim card and activate cellular service on my new iPad, when putting in my billing address, verizon keeps on auto correcting it to an invalid address. Anyone have this happen to them? What was the solution?

    One thought would be to remember that Verizon does not affect your spelling!
    'Tis just a setting on your iPad :D
    So, turn off autocorrect, if you need to enter that information correctly the first time.
    Settings/General/Keyboards, then turn off Auto-Correction.
    Complete your activation, then turn Auto-Correction back on, if you like it.

    It's not the iPad auto correct... It's Verizon doing it. I put in my address( correctly), I hit next, and Verizon auto corrects it through their verification process I guess it is and makes it an invalid address( adds APT RSD to it).

    If it really is Verizon altering your address after the fact, I think you need to be taking this up with Verizon rather than MacRumors. If the data's being manipulated after a round trip to their server, I don't think there's any secret tricks that you can employ to get the right result.

    Where is that APT RSD added?
    Street address, or mailing address?
    Maybe Verizon requires that addition in your community,
    Or, is it just an old address for you that has been changed?
    Verizon would need that updated information, in any case.
    That should be the fix for your address, after Verizon corrects it.
