    Hi Everyone
    Just bought my iPad2 yesterday, trying to set it up, had some success with it, but not quite there yet. I need a micro sim, to get the 3G to run. Any advice on how to avoid any pitfalls and a quick startup would be appreciated
    Many thanks
    Shiu

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    Have you connected your iPad to your PC/Mac yet. You don't need a 3G sim to get your iPad up and running
    initially. I didn't buy mine for a few months and then I only top it up when I know I'll need it. Let us know how you go.
