Mobile Hotspot Elevate 4g + ipad data sim?

My question is if the mobile hotspot elevate 4g (currently offered by at&t with a minimum 5Gb data plan for 50$) is purchased out of contract, can i swap in my iPad 2Gb at&t data plan to it? Or is it just not compatible? I ask because i feel like 5Gb would be a bit of an overkill for my needs, and the $25 iPad plan is perfect for me. I have read around that uses the same micro sim card that the iPad does but not info related directed towards my question

For the record i live in a city with 4g coverage already deployed and with heavy hspa+ coverage, so is it possible? Even if it requires some tinkering i don't mind. If i were willing to buy it for the sake of trying it and it didn't worked, whats at&t return period for mobile hotspots?

Any feedback regarding my issue would be greatly appreciated, good day
