iPad 2 having problems connecting to Verizon 3G?

TiPb Asks: Is your iPad 2 having problems connecting to Verizon 3G?
Verizon iPad 2 owners are complaining that if they turn off 3G in settings they can’t reconnect to Verizon’s 3G network unless they reboot. Restoring hasn’t helped and apparently swapping devices hasn’t helped either. It’s unclear how many Verizon iPad 2 3G users are suffering with the bug but an Apple Discussions thread has already filled with page after page of complaints.
More after the break…
So here’s what we know:

Bug symptoms

  • Turn off 3G cellular data
  • Try to turn 3G cellular data back on
  • It won’t reconnect to Verizon network

Bug work-around

  • Turn on 3G cellular data
  • Reboot iPad
  • iPad should reconnect to Verizon
This is annoying to say the least and hopefully Apple and Verizon will address the issue in the rumored iOS 4.3.2 update. In the meantime let us know if you have experience this bug and if so, whether the workaround worked or if you’ve come up with any other workarounds!
