    I just received my Mini 4. This one is the model A1550 with cellular and I would like to know if there is any way to stop the pop up prompt that reminds me that there is no sim card installed. I don't plan to ever use this iPad Mini with a cellular connection so I don't need this reminder showing up when I power it up. Thanks for any help on thiis.

    find an old deactivated sim card and pop it into the ipad, thats pretty much it.

    Thank you for the information. I don't know where I will find one in my area but I will look for one.

    You could find one at a retailer that sells phones. They usually have a selection of SIM cards for sale. I paid $10.00 for a new inactivated SIM card.

    Or ask your friends if they have a drawer of dead cell phones, anything in the last 5 years should have the right size card.

    My Pro wifi+cellular stopped nagging me. In Control Center (swipe up from the bottom) make sure the cellular radio is turned off

    I did not know that I could just buy a sim card like that. Would I have to do any kind of activation for it or just use it like it is? Thanks

    You can also turn Mobile Data off in the Settings App.

    No, you don't have pay for any plan.
