I just bought my second iPad, so I'm not quite new to it. However, this second device is 3G capable. My first was not (and now, with the release of iPad 3, you can get a bargain on the first gens quite easily). I joined this forum last year but never had any real cause to use it. Now I do because I'm trying to locate information on how to activate the 3G. I found a post in Google search...anyway, that's why I'm here.
