    I have backed up my iPad and restored to my new iPad 2. Things went remarkably smooth (so far). I am starting to configure the iPad for my wife's use (what gotta go through to get a new toy).

    What is the easiest way to transfer my cellular account from the iPad to the iPad 2? I was just going to enter all the AT&T that I used to set up the iPad into the iPad 2. Any issues of which I need to be aware?

    Thanks

    Mike

    Just to be safe, call Att customer service. I think they have to transfer your MEI info onto your iPad 2. That's just my guess.

    Outside my iPad, or was it inside?

    Yes, enter the AT&T data in iPad 2, but also call AT&T and inform them of the change, otherwise it will look to them, as if you are tethering the connection and you risk getting transferred to a tethering contract.

    Thank you for that advice. I would have overlooked that step.

    Regards.
