    I currently own a first Gen IPad. It's just has to be replaced because it has "nervous breakdowns". So I just ordered a refurbished 64 gig Air. Being in the electronics field when I was working, I know that refurbed units have a whole bunch of testing that the new ones don't get. They are actually more reliable units. They have already passed the infant mortaliy period. I hoped I will love the faster new iPad Air.

    Besides being thoroughly checked out and supplied with a new battery and case, they also have the same warranty as a brand new iPad. I'm sure you'll enjoy your iPad Air, it's light years ahead of the iPad 1 in performance.

    They are availble in other countries as well. I know from the Austrian Online Apple Store, that it's possible to get them here too.

    I ordered my Air from someone on Amazon. It was said to be for Verizon, but when I received it in the mail it had AT&T listed in settings. Little did I know , the guy I bought it from was told by Amazon to please put a SIM card in it when selling it (why I don't know) well he put an AT&T SIM card in it. When I got it I was baffled, I didn't realize how easy it was to just get a new SIM card put in it from Verizon. Now it works great with Verizon's service. I'm so confused about mobile carriers on the iPads. Seems like having to state your carrier when buying one is not necessary if all it is, is the SIM card that's in it?

    With the iPad 4 and earlier you needed to state your carrier. The iPad's hardware supported either CDMA (Verizon) or GSM (AT&T, and most other carriers). With the iPad Air the hardware became capable of supporting almost all carriers in most countries.

    So for recent models, yes, changing the SIM is all you need to do to change carriers.

    Well, there is the issue of carrier locking, but you normally only run into this with phones. Most iPad's come unlocked. And even if you are locked, as long as your device is not on contract you have the right to have it unlocked.
