Wi-Fi plus 3G models of the iPad use micro-SIM cards for cellular data. A SIM card, or Subscriber Identity Module, contains a memory chip that stores personal identity information. You can access the iPad's SIM card by ejecting the SIM card tray from the side panel of the iPad. The card tray is flush with the side panel of the iPad so you will need a SIM eject tool to remove it. If you don't have this tool, you can use the end of a straightened paper clip.
