OK to move SIM from old iPad to new (Grandfathered Unlimited Data)

Not wanting to activate the embedded Apple SIM in my iPad Pro I went to an ATT store to get a carrier SIM. The employee there said I could just swap the SIM from my Air 2 to my Pro. I asked if that was allowed with a grandfathered unlimited plan and was told yes. 

 

Can anyone here confirm that is correct info and it's not considered a violation of terms since the SIM is registered to my old Air, not my Pro? I don't want to lose my plan. IIRC in the past it was considered a violation to use a SIM registered to one device on a different one.  Am I misremembering?

Yes.  Your plan will continue on a new device just fine.  As long as it remains a tablet line your in luck.

 

The iPad Air 2 was also not the original device on this plan and you didn't have a problem using it.  And the original was a 3G iPad.

Thanks. Just wanted to make sure reusing the SIM was OK. In my previous upgrades I've always used the new SIM included w/ the iPad and my ATT account reflected the correct IMEI being used. Right now my ATT account shows mt iPad Air's IMEI.

You can have that corrected if it doesn't correct itself (which may take a couple of days on the network to do.

Harry,  

Is your ipadPro functioning well with the grandfathered unlimited plan? Do things load quickly and can it handle a lot of tabs being open at once, streaming videos etc?  I'm debating doing the same thing -- buy a new ipad & use it as my only internet service at home (cancel my current cable internet provider). Otherwise I may/will cancel my unlimited plan to save money since I don't really use my ipad outside of my house anymore.

How would that help you?   If he lives in an area of excellent coverage, and you don't, your service will be lousy no matter what?   

If your question is related to the speed of the new iPads, they are excellent.  Newer iPads are LTE speed, which is 100-1,000 times faster than the original iPad with 3G only.
