How to Add SIM Cards to a Wi-Fi iPad

Adding a micro-SIM card to a 3 G-enabled iPad allows you to access the Internet over the SIM card provider's wireless cellular network. An iPad that can accommodate a micro-SIM card has a built-in SIM tray that allows you to insert the SIM card into the device safely. A micro-SIM card is a small version of a regular SIM card. Although it is smaller, it can still access a cellular network to transmit and receive data just like a regular card.
