    Please I went to a MTN shop to purchase a sim for my iPad and was given the normal phone sim and not the micro or mini sim to buy, does that mean if I buy a sim sold by road side vendors and follow the steps you highlighted for activation it will work? Hope to hear from u and thx for d good works
