    No however if you wish to access the internet outside of hot spots, you'll need to get the 3G or 4G version of the iPad and then activate the service.

  • No.

    You can use the iPad anywhere. If you want internet access, you'll need access to a wireless network OR a cellular connection (assuming you have the WIFI+4G version of the iPad)

  • If it is 3g or 4g you have to if you want to use them or you could get a wifi only model which is cheaper. But you can get 3g or 4g and not activate it. I hope this helps.
