I am considering purchasing a used iPad 3rd generation 8.9 size. This iPad is advertised as a used 64gb Verizon iPad. I only want to use the iPad on wifi and do not want to connect to Verizon or AT&T. Can I do this or do I have to go through Verizon to get it to work. I have never had an iPad and I am 67 years of age so I am not familiar with what I need to look for or be careful about in buying a used iPad.
Yes, you will be able to use the iPad without a Verizon SIM card through your WiFi network. However, it appears that there is a problem where the iPad keeps notifying you that there is no SIM card.
I would advise getting one without cellular data as you don't plan on using it anyway. Those iPads are probably cheaper and will not have the previously described problem.
Yes, you can use it without activating the cellular radio.
