We have been hearing rumors over the last couple of days that Apple had recalled some iPad 2’s that had been shipped out to Verizon Wireless, Apple has now confirmed that a small number of iPad 2’s have been recalled.
Apple recently told Reuters that a small number of iPad 2’s had been shipped to Verizon containing the same MEID numbers, which is supposed to be a unique number for each device.
“Duplicate MEID codes were flashed onto an extremely small number of iPad units for the Verizon 3G network,”
