Setting Up Your 3G/4G Connection

If you have an iPad with 3G/4G capabilities, you can set it up to use AT&T, Verizon, or any other compatible network. You can purchase a monthly data plan or purchase service in shorter increments.

  1. Tap the Settings icon on the Home screen.
  2. Tap Cellular Data on the left.
  3. Turn on Cellular Data. In addition, if you have a 3rd generation iPad, turn on Enable LTE for the faster 4G connection.
  4. Tap View Account.
  5. Next, you are prompted to create an account with a service. The service will be either AT&T or Verizon in the U.S., depending on which iPad model you own. You’ll need to enter all your basic information and specify an email address for your account and a password.
  6. Choose a data plan.
  7. Enter your credit card information. When you are done, you have to approve the service agreement and confirm your purchase. Still, it beats going to the mall and dealing with a salesperson at a mobile phone store, right?
  8. Tap OK. It may take a few more minutes for your 4G service to activate.
  9. After establishing 4G service you can view your usage and renew your plan at any time by following steps 1, 2, and 4 again. Then you can see your play details and status. Tap Add Data or Change Plan to renew or increase your data plan.
