Just purchased an ipad2 wifi 16gb .can I insert a micro sim for3G ?
You need the cellular model to use a 3G sim.
How can I identify if this model is cellular?
On the iPad 2 there is a SIM tray access on the side at the top left when holding the iPad in portrait orientation. It has a small round hole above it ( for the SIM tray remover pin). It is the same corner as the headphone jack.
If it does not have this, then it is wifi only.
I assumed from your description that you knew you had a wifi only model?
ThanksDh777.still boxed and sealed.box image is no indicator.i guess there's more than one surprise this Christmas Day.a patient reply from u.like ur style
I believe it should say so on the box. On the back, small sticker with the barcoded on it. On the top is the description. Mine says "iPad 2 Wi-Fi 3G 16GB Black". Mine is the wifi/cellular version.
The wifi only will drop the 3G and just say Wi-Fi.
Hi and welcome to the Forum!
It should have the specs of your iPad on the back of the box, bottom right I think.

Hello and welcome to the forum!
Thksdh777 no 3G.can purchase a Telstra elite mobile wifi,is this the only option?
Australia! Yes, most mobile providers have portable wifi/3G options, so shop around. Telstra is probably best for 4G, and the most reliable 3G, but if you're in a good metro area, you can check out both Vodafone and Optus options.
These are good portable options, and you can usually share the wifi with a number of devices, if needed.
If your just using it around the home, then hopefully you have a wifi modem with your home Internet you can connect to.
