iPad 2 Problems: Apple Investigating Connectivity Issues With Verizon 3G Network

iPad 2

Some Verizon iPad 2 Wi-Fi + 3G users have complained that they’re having problems connecting to Verizon’s 3G network.

Based on this Apple Discussions thread, it looks like Verizon iPad 3G users are facing the problem when they try to enable 3G to connect to Verizon’s network.

All Things Digital reports that Apple has acknowledged the issue and is currently investigating it:

“We are aware that a small number of iPad 2 customers have experienced connectivity issues with the Verizon 3G network and we are investigating it,”

The issue doesn’t seem to be affecting AT&T’s iPad 2 Wi-Fi + 3G customers.

The issue can be resolved by following these steps:

1. Turn the cellular data switch to on.

2. Power off the iPad.

3. Power up the iPad.

4. Turn on cellular data. Data switch is already on.

5. The Verizon service turns on and connects properly.

Apple is rumored to release iOS 4.3.2 software update in the next two weeks, it needs to be seen if it will fix this annoying issue for Verizon iPad 2 users.

Are you facing the connectivity issue with Verizon’s 3G network? Please let us know in the comments.

    “A small number of iPad 2 customers affected”. What a crock. Believe me if it was a small number apple wouldn’t give one crap about us.

    So What exactly is a small number? If you sell 1M 3G units half of which will be Verizon. That’s one small 500k

    I think I am also having a connection issue with my 32GB wifi, as even though the internet connection is ok the ipad says connection error and I have to restart the ipad before I can start browsing.

      No that’s not the issue we’re talking about. It sounds like your iPad has an issue that you should get checked out soon. We are having trouble with 3G connectivity. But really that sounds real fucky, go that checked out.

  • It happens on my ipad2 wifi+3G right now! aarrghh.. how to Turn the cellular data switch to on?? I did a reset yesterday, but this morning I can’t connect to internet again!
