First let me say how happy I am to have found this site, you are all very cool and helpful!
Now to my question. I live in South Africa but my mother will be buying a new iPad on my behalf when she travels to New York next week. I am aware that the 4G element will not work in here in SA for the foreseeable future (at least) but I believe that it will still run 3G. What I would like to know is whether or not an American 4G model will work here in SA. I don't want to buy it and then find out my American iPad's 3G capability is only enabled for use in America.
Furthermore, I see that when choosing the 4G model I can either opt for an A T&T or Verizon model. Now of course these are both obsolete for me living in SA, so does it not matter which one I choose? Or is one model preferable to the other for an overseas purchaser like me... or will neither be able to work over here? My thinking is that I could choose either one and then buy a micro sim from a network here, pop it in and off I go?
Thanks in advance for any help. I hope my question made sense.
