iPad usable in Bahamas?

If I take my new iPad (A1459 iPad (4th generation) Wi-Fi + Cellular purchased from an AT&T store) to the Bahamas will I be able to use the local SIM cards?

Yes, however you will be better off using wifi, lots of free and open spots. Most rental houses have wifi.

Re: iPad usable in Bahamas?

Used the same setup (except the iPad 3) with a BTC sim and it worked fine. IIRC, the sim was $15 and 1GB 4G/LTE was $20/month. After 1GB it's unlimited on EDGE. Coverage in the Exumas was good for EDGE, whereas the higher speeds were elusive, where you would think highspeed is available it's non-existant, but EDGE is fine for email/gribs and such. I found WiFi even more elusive.

YMMV
