Question regarding ipad/ipad 2 3G versions

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
heyah guys, my girlfriend is getting an ipad from this place she's working, she has two options, the wifi version and the 3g with wifi version, she has 2 phone contracts at the moment, both has unlimited data plan, but she rarely uses the 2nd one nowadays.

So the question is, can we trim down her old 02 non iphone sim down to micro sim size and use it on the ipad 2? will that work? she's kinda one of those people who feels bad taking stuff when she knows she wont use it anyway. meaning she doesnt want to get the wifi/3g version if her sim wont work.


Thanks ^_^

Trim like cut it? If so, then no.

If you mean like use the sim in the 3g iPad, still no.

Or you can use tethering instead, I'll just leave that there and won't say much.

oh, thats lame... We know we can tether, but her second phone is not capble of tethering... Its an oldsony ericcson phone... She just wants to make use of her 2nd sim contract which has unlimited data plsn...


Edit: are there any dongles or whatecer out there where we can put her sim in for the 3g connection? Or they dont exist? Searched already but.cant find the right keywords...

Sorry for typos, typing on my phone...
