Am I allowed to swap Iphone 4 Sim to Ipad 3g ?


Am I allowed to swap Iphone 4 Sim to Ipad 3g ?

I tried to work around to swap the Sim of Iphone 4 to Ipad 3g, and it worked. Half hour later ATT sent me text ask me to call 611 to discuss the data plan for Ipad 3g. I called ATT 2 different times, each time I got different answer, 1 represenative said that I could if I can make it work, and other said "I am not allowed to swap the sim of iphone 4 to plug into Ipad. Which answer is corrected ?

On your iphone, you have an iphone data plan.  On your iPad, you would get an iPad data plan.  They are not the same and while it may technically work, they will catch up with you on the billing.  That is why you got the phone message....  Just because a rep gave you a bad answer does not protect you from excessive charges.
