Apple Says It’s Investigating Verizon iPad 3G Issues

Apple said on Friday that it is looking into reports that some users are having issues connecting their iPad 2 to Verizon’s network.

“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 company said in a statement to Mobilized. A Verizon representative did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Some six pages of comments are devoted to the issue on Apple’s forum pages, with additional reports cropping up on many Apple enthusiast sites.

Apple has been said to be working on an update to the iOS that would be coming shortly and may well fix the issue.

The issue does not appear to be affecting any users of either the Wi-Fi only models or the ones that connect with AT&T’s network.

Apple’s iPad 2 went on sale last month, in three models: One has only Wi-Fi, a second has both Wi-Fi and the ability to connect to AT&T’s network while the third has Wi-Fi and the option to connect to Verizon’s network.
