    ATT should be able to give you a free replacement. Also you will need to restore the iPad to wipe their info.

    Thanks I'll try that . All content on the iPad from the previous owner has been erased prior to my purchase , the only thing I can't erase is the att account that is linked to the sim card

    Hmmm, then just go to an ATT store if one is near you and mention that and they should provide you a sim.

    I just went on AT&T site , micro sims are $15 each , that sounds about right since sim cards are usually not free

    you are one lucky guy, sim card are usually charged when you activate a line ,they call it "activation fee" that fee includes a sim card thats how most of us are being charged for a sim card

    Wow, must be because I have made freind's with the ATT store people here. I spend way to much money on phones guess they figure a sim is nothing to the big picture for what I spend lol.
