Using your Micro/Nano SIM in an iPad.

You can pick up a 2degrees Micro SIM or Nano SIM for an iPad at a 2degrees retailer or from our online store.

To get the Micro/Nano SIM working in an iPad it is important that you follow these steps carefully:

  • If your iPad requires a Micro SIM, push out the Micro SIM from the packaging and insert the Micro SIM into your iPad. If your iPad requires a Nano SIM, insert it directly into your iPad.
  • Then Select ‘Settings’ from the Homepage.
  • Now select ‘Cellular Data’.
  • Then turn on Cellular Data and Data roaming.
  • Then edit the Cellular Data APN, tap the ‘APN’ field and type ‘internet’.
  • Then tap Cellular Data at the top to save the changes to the APN and return to the Cellular Data settings.
  • Then turn off the iPad and restart.
  • Open your Web Browser and you will be automatically redirected to a 2degrees mobile landing page.
  • If you are unable to connect check Wi-Fi is turned off.
  • To get the best value we recommend you purchase a Data Pack. To do this, select ‘buy a value pack’ from the 2degrees landing page. Select either a National Data Pack or a Mobile Broadband Zone Data Pack, whichever best meets your needs.
  • Once you have agreed to the Terms & Conditions and selected ‘Make your payment’, you will need to enter your credit card details to complete the purchase.
  • Find more information on 2degrees Value Packs.

If you’re a 2degrees Pay Monthly customer, the easiest way to use data on your iPad (as along as it has a 2degrees SIM) is to share your plan data with our Shared Data product – only on 2degrees. Read more about Shared Data.
