Hi
I am Vinod. I will try my best to help you resolve this issue.
Sorry to hear that your ipad is showing a "sim locked" message..:( What I understand is, when you turn on the ipad, you are getting the message "sim locked" and it won't go any further, correct?
To get the sim pin, you would need to contact your carrier. Some carriers have default sim pins. For example, if your carrier is "Verizon", you would need to contact Verizon to get the sim pin.
Also, if you enter the wrong pin too many times, the ipad will ask for a PUK code. Your sim carrier may even have that.
Hope this answers your query. Please let me know if you find any difficulty.
Thank You
Vinod

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
