    Not sure which iPad you own (1 or 2?), but do you have a machine w/ a SIM slot (like the pic below; located upper left side when viewing the front of the iPad); with the proper card inserted/purchased and a 3G plan, your iPad can connect via cellular wireless technology; AT&T and Verizon are 2 companies that offer these plans and the appropriate SIM card.

    Thus, if the slot shown and described is not on your iPad, then you have neither cellular option - hope this helps - :)

    P.S. Also, 'Cellular Data' should be an available option to setup from the 'Settings' menu.

    The Verizon iPad has no slot for a SIM card; the AT&T iPad has a SIM card slot. The AT&T iPad is GSM, is unlocked and can take other SIM cards, including ones from other countries. The Verizon iPad is CDMA and is not compatible with carriers in many countries.

    @wullie1967, which country did you buy it in, if it was anywhere other than the USA , then you have no need to worry as the CDMA Ipad (the verizon one) is only available in the states.

    CDMA is available in some 40+ countries.

    List of Cdma Mobile Operators,Carriers and Networks By Country- Africa,Europe,Canada,USA,Asia,Latin America,Canada,United States and the Carribean

    EDIT: I see that you meant that the Verizon iPad (CDMA) is only available in the U.S. It is possible to use a Verizon iPad in countries having carriers that support CDMA:

    Edited my post to make it clearer, I meant the CDMA ipad was only available in the USA, not CDMA in general.

    I'm sure with the ipad 3 they'll make it worldwide compatible, like the iphone 4s, which has both GSM and CDMA.

    Agreed, I would fully expect a CDMA/GSM compatible iPad 3...same technology as the iPhone 4S, so no reason not to employ it.

    Your current version is displayed in Settings > General > About on the iPad, or you can see it on the device's summary tab when connected to your computer's iTunes - you can also check for updates from there which should find if there is a more up-to-date version available (the latest version is 4.3.2)
