    Upper left corner of the iPad you should see the bars and either a " radar" looking icon or the words 3G

    If you own a wifi+3G model, and you have cellular service active, the iPad will automatically switch between the two, depending on which signal is greater/faster.

    To ensure that you are using one OR the other, go to settings, and turn on wifi and cellular off, or vice versa.
