Some Verizon branded Apple iPad 2 units are being recalled for having duplicate serial numbers
According to 9to5Mac, some Verizon branded Apple iPad 2 units are being recalled by the manufacturer. Units already in the store and those being shipped to buyers via FedEx are being sent back to Cupertino because of a mistake that allowed duplicate MEID numbers on the tablets. This number is called the Mobile Equipment Identifier and each CDMA device has a unique number. In fact, if you activate a new phone on the same number at a CDMA carrier, this is the number they ask you to read to them from the new device so that they can switch your number over.

There is talk that Apple is giving a $50 credit to those who are affected by the recall. If that is you, we would suggest giving them a call and finding out about the $50. And by all means, let us know what is going on by dropping us a comment in the box below!
