What does it mean when it says there is a problem with the sim card?

Exactly that, there is a problem with the sim card.
The sim card is the little chip that links your iPad to the cellular providers network to get internet anywhere.
It may have moved in the tray and lost contact, it may have an actual issue, or it may be deactivated by your cellular service provider.
Contact them to have them look at it or your service and see if there is anything wrong with it.

    Quit the Mac App Store
    Log out of your Mac OS X user account (from the Apple menu)
    Log back in to your user account
    Launch the Mac App Store, sign in, and try downloading again
    You should be able to download any app trouble free now. If you still have problems, reboot your Mac.

  • "There is a problem with the SIM card in your iPhone"

    I'm getting this error when I try to activate my new iPhone 4 through iTunes:
    "*There is a problem with the SIM card in your iPhone.*
    To activate your iPhone with this account, you will need a new, unactivated SIM card. Please use the SIM card that was provided with your new iPhone. If you are using the new SIM card, and are unable to complete activation, you can go to an Apple Retail Store or an AT&T company owned retail store to request an unactivated SIM. If you would prefer to have a replacement SIM card sent to you via overnight mail, please call us at 1-800-MY-APPLE. We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused."
    Now I've already been to AT&T and nothing they could do with the account settings would work, in fact they had never seen the issue before. They gave me a new SIM card and that did nothing as well. Finally they tried out a different SIM tray, and that still didn't work. I have a Genius Bar appointment at the Apple Store tomorrow, but I was wondering if anyone else has this problem. Do you think that the SIM reader inside the iPhone 4 is broken?

    I solved a problem I had with activating my iPhone although the error message was different from yours.
    I got the message "There is something wrong with your iPhone and it cannot be activated, please bring it to your nearest Apple service".
    Via a Chinese forum I found out its the SIM card witch is the problem. If the serial number of the SIM has a "letter" in it it won't work. If only numbers it will work.
    I now tried it with 2 SIM cards with letters and got the message over and over again. Than tried with my only numbers SIM card and it activated instantly.

  • I can't call anybody, but I can receive calls. There's no problem with the sim card, and no numbers are blocked. Help me.

    When I try to call, the call always failed.

    From a different phone, call your cellular carrier.   They need to get involved.

  • Angel Season 5 -- what does it mean when it says "repackage"?

    For some reason there are two versions of Angel Season 5 listed and only one of them is on sale.  The one that is on sale says "repackage" in the product title and I was wondering if that meant that it was used, or if maybe it just meant different packaging.  So, what does it mean when it says "repackage"?
    This is the page I was looking at http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=8014631&productCategoryId=cat02564&type=product&id=1568268
    Thanks!
    Heather

    Hey Heather -
    The only difference in those two skus is the actual packaging.  One is a thicker package (older one) and one is a thinner packaging (newer one).  You should be able to receive the sale price on either. 
    I hope this helps!

  • In iBooks,what does it mean when it says: you have already purchased this item. To download it check available downloads in the store menu?

    In iBooks,what does it mean when it says: you have already purchased this item. To download it check available downloads in the store menu?

    Apologies if I seem rude but isn't it obvious?
    you have already purchased this item means you have already purchased this item - you don't need to buy it, you've already bought it.
    To download it check available downloads in the store menu means to download it check available downloads in the store menu. So if you look at your top menu bar (in your iTunes programme) select the Store and from the menu that appears, select Check for available downloads. My guess (and I realise I'm risking my reputation here ) is that when you click on that, you will see a list of the items you've bought which will include anything you haven't yet downloaded to your iTunes. I assume there will be an option with that list to download those items.
    I would like to thank the person who thought of the idea of taking different words and putting them in a certain order, so that those words form a sentence, and that sentence can then be read by other people and those people understand. Genius!

  • What does it mean when it says to eject before disconnecting Ipod?

    What does it mean when it says to eject before disconnecting Ipod?

    When you press the eject button, iTunes checks to make sure if it has finished using the iPod. When it has finished (and if no other programme is using your iPod, such as anti-virus programmes) iTunes will confirm to you that it is then safe to disconnect the iPod (unplug the cable).
    If you unplug an iPod from your computer while iTunes or any other prgramme is using the iPod, it will probably corrupt the files and you may be unable to use some or all songs until you Restore the iPod.

    It suggests that the installer is getting damaged during the download.

  • What does it mean when it says "ipad has lost it's pairing"

    what does it mean when it says "ipad has lost it's pairing"

    If you are getting that message when you try to sync your iPad, eject the iPad, quit iTunes, restart your computer, reset the iPad and then try to sync again.
    Reset the iPad by holding down on the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider if it appears on the screen - let go of the buttons. Let the iPad start up.
    If that doesn't work, just try using a different USB port.

  • HT4101 What does it mean when it says that the USB device requires too much power?

    What does it mean when it says that the USB device requires too much power, when using the ipad lightening pin camera connection kit?

    Just that. The iPad allocates a certain amount of power to that port. If the device you're trying to plug in wants more than the iPad is willing to give, it'll trigger that warning.
    If it's something that you just must hook up you can try using a powered USB hub, but results are mixed at best.
    What are you trying to hook to your iPad?
