    Re: Unable to activate 3G data plan on my iPad.

    The first thing that I would like to tell you here is that just check out whether you have inserted the SIM card on the iPad for the 3G connection and if yes then you have to see whether 3G services are activated on it. The thing here is that if the SIM card is not activated for the 3G services then you will definitely not get the connection. So what you have to do in this case is that just check out whether the cards is properly activated and then only insert the same on the iPad.

    I have gone through your problem and it seems to me that you have inserted the micro SIM and the you are it is connected to iTunes and that is why you are unable to activate the 3G connection. Now what you have to do here is that just follow the steps below:
    • First of all insert the SIM on your iPad
    • Connect the iPad to iTunes
    • Then you have to select the wifi+3G which is at the left side of the screen or the left side if the iTunes windows.
    • And now you have to tap on the check for updates option.
    • And then it will check for the updates and the network connection will be automatically updated

    I am having a problem too which is quite similar to the one that you have. Actually the thing here is that I have activated the 3G connection on my iPad but the thing is that the plan which I am having is renewing the plan that I am having. Now when I enter in my account there I found a option called change the account but I afraid to tap on it because if I will do anything silly then the my 29.9$ are gone that is the plan will be deleted or unsubscribed. So please suggest me a way that will help me out of it.
