Transfer an Old Data Plan to a New iPad

The iPad has been around since April 2010 and has been updated twice since that first model. So what if you had an original 3G iPad or a 3G iPad 2 and you’ve now updated to the latest Wi-Fi + Cellular model? What happens to your old 3G data plan? Here’s how each carrier handles that.

AT&T

If you had a 3G service account on your old iPad, just fire up your new one (either the new Cellular model or an iPad 2) and tap Home→Settings→Cellular Data→View Account. As shown below, tap the Existing iPad Customer line, enter your old account name and password, and follow along to transfer your account.

If you bought your original, first-generation iPad before June 7, 2010, you had the option of a $30-a-month unlimited data plan, and yes, you can bring this ancient treasure along to your new iPad.
