    just a quick question, i got it off amazon but it looks like its coming from Ontario, Canada. living in the US the device should have any problem right ? i once got a iPhone from the Apple store here (i live in las vegas) but it was coded to work for cuba or something like that and it was giving me problems so i had to get it replaced. i don't want the same problem with the ipad

    Looks ok to me. I don't get the Cuba thing. What did Apple say happened on that?

    unfortunately it was 2 years ago when the 5 first came out, and i don't quite remember what was wrong but i went back to Apple and they did a diagnostics were they take a code from the phone and put it in there little hand held thing and it came back that the phone wasn't from usa or "north america" region. and it was giving (me again don't quite remember) the problem, so they changed out the phone. i just don't want to run into a problem buying a product from another country.

    I don't think you'll have an issue. It should work no differently than an iPad mini purchased here in the US.

    For what its worth, most of the larger metropolitan areas in Canada have 1 if not more Apple Stores , and many many authorized resellers...... There is no difference between the products and accessories sold in Canada and what is available in the USA .
