Want to purchase an ipad pro with Cellular but don't want to sign up for a plan

I want to purchase an ipad pro but I want to activate it with the T-Mobile free data plan. I only see ATT Sprint and Verizon models with 2 year plan activations. 

How do I get the model I want? 

Apple - 9.7-Inch iPad Pro with Wi-Fi + Cellular - 256GB - Space Gray

Pretty much restricted to iPad Air refurbished

 

If you research it there are some DYI site that tell you how to get an unlocked one to work on T Mobile. 

 

My suspecion is that either the carriers or Apple will not let BB sell unlocked Pro's

 

BB only carries them for Verizion, Sprint and ATT.

 

You may have to go direct to T Mobile to get an iPad pro

 

And they don't come cheap.

 

Consider buying a WiFi iPad and then teathering it.  This way you only pay for one service plan

Actually I buy them at the Apple store this way all the time, they aren't set to a particular carrier, you decide which one you want when you set it up. I just don't see the option at Best Buy.

I meant for Best Buy.

 

Curious as to why you would buy a lot of them.

Hi jglumb –


If you’re looking to purchase for a business I recommend working with an account manager though our Best Buy for Business Division, who may be able to accommodate your needs with items not available through our stores or website.
