New IPAD Purchase

I have been using the orignal IPAD with a Rogers sim card on the 3G network. With many apps and of course the OS not being able to be updated on my older IPAD I was looking at buying the latest IPAD and using my current sim card in the new device. Will this work or do I need to cancel my current service and get a new sim and activate new service. Thanks for any info or help with this, much appreciated.

Re: New IPAD Purchase

3G service is 3G service.
Doesn't change regardless of which iPAD or which Tablet you use it on!
(As long as Tablets of any kind [iOS/iPad, Android, Windows, etc] are 3G capable; it will work)

The only thing matter will be your SIM card.
New iPAD most likely uses a smaller size SIM card. Your plan does NOT need to change. Your service does NOT need to cancel, you actually want to keep it [ACTIVE] if you want 3G service.

If the new iPAD uses smaller sim card, you just get a smaller sim card but your account stays the same and you just add the sim card number as your active sim card. Pretty simple process.

You MAY want to change your service plan for more data, that is your call but its not needed.

If you already have ShareEverything Plan (CellPhone/SmartPhone) - They now have tablet share plans with EasyPay. Which is financing tablet instead of paying it up front.
But this only applies if you have Smartphone/Cellphone with Rogers already and even if you don't have ShareEverything plan - they can upgrade you to one and get your Tablet Share going with EasyPay!

 

You don't need to go the ShareEverything route, if you already have the new iPad or if you don't need EasyPay.

 

Hope this info helps.
