What You Need to Know about iPad

If you have made the decision to purchase an iPad, you should be aware that not all of them feature a SIM card port. The Apple iPad 3G and Apple iPad non-3G (Wi-Fi iPad) are not the same. While a Wi-Fi iPad lacks a SIM card port, a 3G iPad does.

If you own a 3G iPad, you can access the internet through Wi-Fi as well as iPad data plans provided by ISPs (Internet service providers); however, if you own a Wi-Fi iPad, you can only access the internet through Wi-Fi. 3G iPads are more expensive than Wi-Fi iPads.

Apple iPads use micro SIM cards that are smaller than the normal SIM cards we insert into our mobile phones. You can walk into any Globacom office to get a micro SIM card for your iPad.
