    Yes. Apple says.the 3G antenna inside the iPad is a world antenna. This means that it can be used all over the world by purchasing a local Sim card. Please remember that this is 3G not 4G. 4G LTE is only available in North America (United States and Canada). the iPad will automatically switch to 3G if 4G LTE is not found where you are.

  • Yes the iPads are not locked to any one wireless carrier however once abroad you would need to contact your preferred wireless carrier to see if they support an iPad data plan as well as the correct SIM card of which you would need to get from that carrier.

  • The new Verizon iPad Will work in europe. Aside from the Verizon 4g antenna, it also has a world 3G gsm micro-sim tray, so it would connect to any 3g GSM network in Europe.

  • The new iPad is a world device, but the LTE functionality will not work in other markets.

  • If you can get access to a micro-SIM card, it should work (just not on LTE).

  • You may have to adjust your APN Settings.
    iPad: Settings > Cellular Data > APN Settings
    Search for "apn changer ipad" or "APNchangeR" on google.

  • Reportedly it will work in Europe with a European SIM, or with the included Vzw SIM at international roaming rates. (I recommend you get a SIM in Europe!) The new iPad is reportedly NOT compatible with European LTE networks, so it will be "3G" only. The Vzw iPad can be used out of the box on AT&T's network with an AT&T SIM installed. I've seen this first hand.

  • only if you have a global plan or you pay the roaming charges every time you use data which adds up pretty quick and could be pricey.
