    LTE frequencies differ in different countries, so an iPad bought in the USA for use outside the USA may not work on the local LTE frequencies.
    It will probably work on 3G frequencies, however.

    I could be wrong, but I believe that iPads are sold unlocked.

    You are correct, scifan, iPads sold in the USA are not locked to a specific carrier.
