    Default TMo iPad on Att?

    Would a TMo iPad mini work on AT&T if the sim was swapped?

    I'd like to think so.

    I read somewhere that it was done by a few people. I have the AT&T iPad Air, but don't have a iPad data plan with T-Mobile to test this out.

    Yes. There is only one iAd model that will work I. LTE in all carriers. Both tmobile and ATT are gsm so it will work on 3G as well. iPads are always sold unlocked.

    There is actually only one LTE model with all the bands so it makes no difference which one you get, you'll be able to just drop in another carrier's sim and be good to go.

    I purchased a Tmobile mini because I couldn't get a Verizon model and stuck my Sim in from Verizon and it's working perfectly.

    My Vzn mini was delivered yesterday. Purchased TMO sim a few days prior so I'd have it available when the mini arrived. Installed the TMO sim without issues and now have the free monthy 200MBs of data. Not much but helpful when in a pinch. Very pleased.

    Purchased a T-Mobile iPad MiniR a couple weeks ago and put my AT&T SIM in it and it worked no problem. SIM was used in old iPad Mini non retina as part of a shared data plan FYI. Just a few days ago put the T-Mobile SIM in the older iPad Mini non retina that was purchased as an AT&T model and it worked fine and was able to activate the FREE 200MB data plan, no problems. All new iPad MiniR and Airs use same hardware for all Cellular models.
