    Hey guys, I have a 32gb 3G iPad that I bought used at a great price. I currently have no intention of activating 3G due to the cost but I get the notification message to acvtivate the SIM card. Is there any way to stop it?

    Not 100% sure but I would say try going to your settings and turning off your data connection.

    Just go into settings and turn off the 3G data.

    Its doing this because your doing something that requires internet yet you are not connected to wifi and 3G service isn't activated.


    Turning 3G data off should also make your battery life a tad bit longer. (1hour)
