    I recently ordered an iPad Air Cellular from SPRINT. I didn't really care about the carrier while ordering because I'm taking the device outside the US and will be using a foreign GSM SIM. All I wanted to know is...

    Do I need to activate with Sprint first and get it unlocked to be used outside the US, or I can simply remove the Sprint SIM (without even activating) and replace with my other(foreign) nano-SIM?

    Please advise...

    None of the ipads are carrier locked (in the US at least).

    Just put in the SIM of your preferred carrier.

    (I'm using a Verizon rMini on an AT&T SIM, but also activated a TMobile SIM for free 200MB/mo -- I never activated the Verizon SIM)
