Apple Looking Into Verizon iPad 2 3G Issues, Fix Likely Coming In Next iOS Update

A thread on Apple Discussions detailing connectivity issues experienced by some users on the Verizon iPad 2 WiFi + 3G model caught the attention of the Internet today as more than 80 replies were posted on the original thread confirming that the issue occurred when turning on / off the 3G signal and trying to get it to work again. Other users reported tricks like temporarily activating Airplane mode on their iPad 2 to “kill” 3G and restart it didn’t work as a solution to re-enable connectivity on the device.

All Things Digital now reports an official statement from Apple, with the company confirming that they’re “investigating” the issues:

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.

Apple has been rumored to be wrapping up the release of another iOS update, version 4.3.2, to make it available in the next two weeks. If Apple has confirmed their engineering team is looking into connectivity problems, there is the high chance these issues will be addressed in the aforementioned iOS update, which is going to be focused on bug fixes and performance enhancements for all iOS devices.
