Just adding my two pence:
I don't know if it is the same everywhere but in Japan the IPads are linked
to one phone provider. They cannot be modified to fit with another: if you
want to travel, you have to pay for the connection fees from your Japanese
company or to buy another IPad from the country you go to (which may
actually be less expensive...).
So there does not seem to be any SIM in the IPad, or maybe it is included
inside from factory. If there is no SIM at all (which may be easy to check
if anyone with an IPad is willing to open it) then it is definitely
possible to access the phone network from software solutions only.
