    I just bought a used iPad 3 (MC744LL/a) and was wondering how I could tell if it was global or us version or if it makes a difference?

    Also, it came with iOS 6.1.3 and I was wondering if there was any way to downgrade so that I can jailbreak?
    I have jailbroken my iPhone 4 so I am familiar with the procedure

    Thanks all
    Tony

    A Google search reveals that the model number you provided is for a Verizon model iPad. It also is an LTE model for Verizon. So, it's a US model, tho I believe it will work overseas (you just won't get the LTE - only 4G).

    And no, sorry, but you cannot downgrade the iOS. Once it's on iOS 6.1.3, there it stays. You cannot jail break iOS 6.1.3 - you'll have to wait until one is found for iOS 7.

    Wow, that is an awesome search you did. Thank you

    What a bummer about the iOS. I saw this on youtube thought I could do it on the iPad

    Any iPad can work from one country to another and there is no issue on that, so please don't mind it if its U.S. version or not. With the iOS I agree that you cannot downgrade it as I'm also like you before who wants it to be downgraded but unfortunately there is no way to do that.

    You can downgrade your iOS but sadly it's restricted to iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS or a 4th generation iPod touch only. Last I've seen the 4S, 5, 5th gen ipod and iPads aren't able. And even then you need your device specific SHSH blobs with the correct iOS version you want available to do the downgrade. I'm the same as you. I received a refurbished iPad 3 with iOS 6.1.3 so no way to downgrade. We all just have to wait until iOS 7 comes out and they complete the untethered break. They're working on it now buts its on the iOS 7 developers version so you know the official version will have changes prior to release. Heck I'd kill for even a tethered version for 6.1.3 right now. Instead I'll be waiting a few more months.
