New Sim card

I was issued with a new data SIM for my IPAD, getting message SIM not supported.

Spent nearly 45 mins with a Phillipino agent who told me that it’s been sorted and will be in service between 45 mins and 24 hrs. 3 days later and I still can’t use my IPAD mobile data.

Re: New Sim card

Hi Einarua1, 

Thanks for your post and welcome to our community. 

Sorry to heat that you're having issues with your new SIM. 

We'd need to have a closer look and see what type of SIM you're on and ensure it's compatible. 

Can you confirm what iPad you're using? 

Have we advised if you're on a SIM that is compatible for the iPad? 

Has the SIM been activated?

Re: New Sim card

Hi Emma

I received a second Sim Card for my IPAD and this one does not work either.

I am using an IPAD Air. The original SIM (White ) was working perfectly until Virgin decided to change it.

Re: New Sim card

The new SIM card did not work either, I have cancelled my contract. Purchased a data sim from EE and worked first time.

Re: New Sim card

Sounds like your iPad is locked to the EE network.

The old Virgin SIM's were EE based, so it work fine in the iPad.  The new Virgin SIM's are based on Virgin's own network, so do not work in a EE locked device.
