    I mean there is no problem at all. It works perfectly. I turn on-and-off the 3G anytime I choose. There is nothing quirky about it.

    I have a 32gb Verizon white. I shut off the cellular Data switch because I kept getting the notice to sign on with Verizon. I got the iPad 2 with the Verizon 3G just to have when I may need it. After reading the op's post I tried to turn on the data switch and it wouldn't come on. I followed the op's instructions (set the switch to on, powered off then on the iPad 2) and the Verizon w/signal strength bars shows up again in the upper left hand corner.

    Now the Cellular Data switch seems to work as Apple intended. I can turn it on and off from inside the settings page.

    I did upgrade the OS from 4.3 to 4.3.1 before I started any of this.

    I still have not activated my Verizon account. Hope this helps.

    Thanks captx and lferrel. Unfortunately for me the on/off cellular switch only works if Cellular Data was on when my iPad was previously shut off or rebooted (in which case I caturn it on/off as many times as I want to - even after locking it). However, if I forget to turn Cellular Data on, then it never works.

    It looks like you are both saying that your experience as follows:
    1. Turn the Cellular Data switch off.
    2. Power off or reboot your iPad.
    3. Power up the iPad.
    4. Turn on Cellular Data.
    5. The Verizon service turns on and connects properly.

    I wonder what is different for those of us that are having problems. FWIW, I restored my iPad 2 from an AT&T 3G iPad 1. Anyone else?

    For me:
    1. Turn the Cellular Data switch ON.
    2. Power off iPad.
    3. Power up the iPad.
    4. (Turn on Cellular Data.) Data switch is already on.
    5. The Verizon service turns on and connects properly.

    FWIW,This is my first iPad. Except for a 1st generation iPod this is my first Apple product.

    Hi Captfx - thanks for the quick reply. You just described the workaround for the bug. You should be able to have Cellular Data in the off position when you power off and still be able to turn the Verizon service on.

    Would you be able to try one more thing? What happens if you power off with the Cellular Data switch in the off position? Can you still turn on your Verizon service when you power back up? Thanks!

    I power off with the Cellular Data switch in the off position. After I turn it back on I go into settings, switch the Cellular Data switch back on I get "No Service" in the upper right corner when I power back up.

    Remember, I still haven't set up an account for Verizon yet.[/QUOTE]

    Got it. Thanks again, Captfx. Looks like you may have the bug on yours too, and since this is your first iPad, this issue is probably not related to restoring from an iPad with AT&T service. IIRC, my iPad 2 behaved the same as yours before I signed up for the Verizon service.

    Okay, this doesn't sound like much of a problem. I am really lovin this thing. It probably won't be long before I activate the Verizon just to try it.

    I am having connectivity issues also on my white ipad2. I have tried all of the above, called Verizon(they suggested a full reset. I have already done this twice for other issues) and still no go. Am getting tired of all the problems I have had with this thing. Any other suggestions

    What exactly is the problem? If the device is causing so many problems then I suggest you make a trip to the Apple store.
