Using iPhone 5 unlimited data SIM in iPad mini

I found this article on the web. I would like to try it but am afraid that I will lose my unlimited plan if I'm found out. HAs anyone tried to do this? Any negative results. What I want to do is set my phone to forward all of my phone calls to my work cell, then install the iPhone 5 sim in my iPad mini to get unlimited data on that device.

You didn't mention carrier info, but since your sig touts ATT I'm assuming..
Swapping sims with Verizon devices works like a champ. Not so with ATT.
I've tried putting my unlimited iPhone sim into my ATT rMini and the card is not recognized. I can't get it work. I've tried several times in the past year

It's a bummer. I've been looking for an AT&T unlimited iPad plan for sale and they are SO expensive.

Yes they are. I have investigated heavily with the intention of buying one but the cost is absolutely out of sight. Fact is, I just don't need it. I honestly do not watch very many movies or am not on YouTube often. My kids are grown so I don't need to entertain them in the backseat either. So 2 grand for something I won't really use to its capacity is absurd. If I go over my 6 gigs one month, I'll just pay for it.

2 grand? That is a lot. We sell them for half of that. But yeah if you don't wanna worry about data the plan is perfect. 29.99 a month.

I wouldn't risk it. Unlimited plan is more valuable than gold. Violation of the contract will give them an excuse to terminate your plan which AT&T would love to do.

I swap my AT&T unlimited data with my Verizon ipad mini and it worked fine except I couldn't get lte service. It was only 3G.

This is a situation where even if someone tells you it is OK to do it and there will be no problems i still would not believe 100% it is OK unless you get it from the horses mouth.

Some people have good luck and well you know the other side to that so it is of course 50/50 whether they catch on to what you are doing.

Since they state you cannot do it i guess that is there way of telling you not to or rather you can but do not let us catch you which of course can possibly happen.

If your unlimited plan means the world to you then i would say do not do it period as others have said AT&T is just looking for excuses to kick people off the unlimited plans already.
