It's likely that an incorrect PIN (personal identification number) was entered into the iPad, too many times, causing the SIM card to deactivate.
The good news is it's
a layer of security that protects you. It stops a thief or unauthorized person from guessing the PIN number to gain access to your iPad.
More good news. Your service provider has the "unlock code."
The not so good news is, depending on the service provider and the plan you've purchased, there may be a nominal charge to unlock the SIM. If you're lucky,
the rep may be tuned to customer service and give you a "goodwill" unlock.
Please let the forum know how this is resolved as your experience may help other members.

My name is Dee Marie. Although I've worked with computers for years, I thought owning an iPad would be a waste of time, and that I would never get enough use out of a Tablet to make it worth my time. That is, until last year, when one of the software giant's "loaned" me an iPad, as I write reviews for their software ... and they had several new iPad apps that they wanted me to review. Much to my surprise, I fell in love with the iPad at first touch.
This past December I purchased my own iPad 2 ... now, I cannot imagine life without my Tablet. I take it everywhere. Although I originally purchased it to write app reviews, I now use it to read novels, play games, and of course do quick web searches.
I stumbled upon the iPad Forum while searching for information on an iPad game. I enjoyed the site and community so much that I had to join in the fun. I look forward to getting to know the Forum members.
Hello :) good to be here!
Welcome all our new members! Good to see you!

i got my 3rd gen ipad 3 months ago, my last apple product was ipod nano 1st gen, so still need to learn lots of tricks and still enjoying it so far....:thumbs:
