    Hi everyone, I have a sad tale to tell....I had my iPad 1 and a phone stolen from right under my nose in McDonalds at Fleet services in the UK. My other half obliged by replacing it with and iPad 3. I did all the usual updates and syncing to restore original data and apps, and then it would remain connected via 3G. Twice I have had to call O2 and they have talked me through everything they can do but still my cellular data account says "Device not Registered' ......but it is!
    If I take the sim out, bit dodgy on this iPad, and replace it it works after a few minutes...then it just dies again as though the data has been used. I have checked and there is still plenty available.
    Has anyone had this problem ? does anyone know if there is anything I can do to resolve it?

    Cheers Folks

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    Some sims are faulty and can be replaced, but try a reset of your iPad and see how you go. This reset will not change anything on your iPad and is akin to rebooting a PC
    Hold the power off button and the home button simultaneously, keep holding them in and you will see the power off slide appear and disappear, wait until you see the Apple logo appear before releasing the buttons. It will take a little longer for your iPad to start. Let us know how you go.
