    At least report it to Apple right away. So if they try to get services, the serial number will reflect the stolen status. Unless you had already set it up with a mobile me account and activated the find-my-ipad feature, you can't find it that way.

    Since you had already locked it up, the only way they can use it is to wipe it. So at least you won't risk losing any of your data on the device.

    What part of the world were you in when it happened?

    Same sim problem

    HI Abhishek,

    I have the same problem. Could not activate network services inspite of the full bars signal and the 3g sign on.

    Used the same settings, pps3g and mtnl plus mtnl123

    Did you manage to solve your problem? Thanks.

    I am in Central Delhi and tried it there.

    Cheers, Vikas

    I'm facing a slight issue with connecting to 3G network.

    Firstly I D.I.Y'ed a Micro-Sim from a Mini Sim (of MTNL Delhi). Works with EDGE services perfectly.. Problem is when I toggle 3G with SB Settings and open safari I get the error 'could not activate network services'.

    I made a 'adaptor' using an old card and managed to put the same sim in a iPhone 3GS, the 3G worked perfectly with APN settings : pps3g, mtnl, mtnl123. Tried on the iPad but failed.. Any ideas where I'm going wrong. Could it be MTNL blocking iPad's imei's!? Btw EDGE also only works with the above APN settings on the iPad. Any kind of help would be appreciated..

    Update: I have tested the 3G services in Haryana (Faridabad & Gurgaon) works properly, shows IN-DOLPHIN 3G and works with speeds upto 1mbps. (most probably with BSNL)

    In Delhi 3G doesn't work on the iPad but works with any other 3G device (N97, iPhone 3GS etc). I feel MTNL has to update the imei's of iPad's into their system whereas BSNL has already done that (being pan-india and MTNL in only 2 cities).

    Note: Here MTNL refers to MTNL Delhi only I'm not sure about Mumbai, all the tests have been done with the same MTNL 3G Jadoo pre-paid card.

    Oh that sucks, cant believe we cant use MTNL's 3G in Delhi and can only use it outside Delhi. What is the solution? Do we all need to write to MTNL and ask them to update the IMEI's of the iPad?

    Thanks. Cheers, Vikas.

    UPDATE: Finally brought my Ipad to work (at Okhla in New Delhi) and thought of trying to see if my modded MTNL Sim 3G Jaddoo card would work and guess what?????????? Works like magic, incredible download speeds, (similar to what I get at home with my 1Mbps airtel connection) and its super fast.

    But why it doesnt work at my residence (central delhi) I have no idea. Maybe its because the Okhla area latches on to the BSNL network? No idea.

    Either way, at least Okhla is one area it works in, dont know about the rest of Delhi though.

    Cheers.

    Hey, just found this forum. Bought my Ipad to delhi, and bought a mtnl 3g dolphin card. cut it up, put it in. despite my best efforts it does not work. If you managed to make it work for you (even in odd locations) - Could you please share the settings you used or other tech which you managed to get it to work with?
    thanks!!!
