    Apple website says the following:

    "If you decide on an iPad with Wi-Fi + 3G, be sure to select the model that corresponds with the carrier you’d like to use for 3G service. The iPad model you purchase is specially configured to work with either AT&T or Verizon —
    not both"

    What is a carrier?

    I think a carrier is a provider. Therefore, ATT and Verizon are carriers.

    Yes your carrier is your Internet provider. The AT&T iPad has a sim card, this can be replaced when travelling to different countries to access 3G internet from different providers around the world. The Verizon model does not have a sim card and will only work in countries that support this network.
