    iPad Air 2 with 8.1 iOS. Constantly get reminders to set up cellar plan. In previous versions of iOS, there was a button to cut off cellar, but this is gone now! How do you get rid of the annoying reminder to set up cellar data plan? Is there one you can set up without cost and just never use it? Help!

    You can turn off Cellular Data in Settings - Cellular Data. Open it and disable the feature.

    Unless I am missing something or just plain stupid, i don't see anywhere in iOS 8.1 where one can cut off the Cellar Data...and it just reminds me all the time to sign up for a plan, etc. oh, it on the annoying give me the option to cancel sign up now or later. I always choose "later" so it always come back later...when I am in a non-WiFi area. I had the iPad Air 1 and there was a place to disable cellar data...but that radio button is gone from the latest version of Pad Air 2. It seems as if Apples is trying to force me to use cellular data! finally, I bought the cellar unit because it has a built in GPS and some apps require it and the maps will work without the cellar data or Wifi. Example...in a WiFi environment, download the map directions and press Start, then even out of WIFI OR CELLAR, it will give step by step directions...the only drawback is that it will not recalculate without Wifi or Call...but it does show where you are on the maps so you just have to navigate back to the chosen route. For info, here are screen shots of the iOS 8.1 with the newest version of the iPad.

    Sorry, I was looking at my iPad Air (1) with SIM card. There's the option to turn of cellular data.

    I can't see the screenshots that you said you include.

    My iPad 2, where I don't use a SIM card (but with cellular as well), shows Cellular Data greyed out, and NO SIM next to it. From time to time, it tells me that there's no SIM card installed.

    Here's a thread where this was discussed: http://www.ipadforums.net/threads/unable-to-download-item.124007/

    You could try popping the SIM out of the iPad. Of course, it might just start warning you that there is no SIM instead.

    Working my way through Setting, I find there are switches to turn on Cellular Data use for iTunes & App Store, FaceTime, iBooks, and Podcasts.

    There might be a couple other places I've missed.

    Check those and make sure they are all off.

    That's all I can think of.

    A reset afterwards probably wouldn't hurt. Or even before if you haven't tried it yet.

    Reset: Hold down the Home and Power buttons until the Apple Logo appears. This deletes nothing. It's just a restart with a little extra kick in the pants.

    Hmm. Check your app settings too. I just discovered a couple there as well. My Weather app and 1Password, for example.

    Ideally these should all be off by default, or missing entirely if Cellular isn't available; but iOS 8 being new and some apps not being updated they might not be.

    An app that's requesting cellular data 'could' cause the system to prompt you to turn it on.

    And that really is all I can think of. At least for now.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I tried these and will see if this helps...I had only on button on, don't remember which one but I cut it off...so, we will see...also hard rebooted, too. Again, thank you for your response. There should have been a turn off button like the last version! Cheers
