Question Sharing SIM cards between ipads

Is it possible to share/swap SIM cards between two iPads? For instance if I activate the SIM on my 3G because I'm going out of town next weekend, can I then swap the card with my Father's iPad so he can use up the remaining access when he goes out of town the week after that?

You can swap sims between pads and it will work fine but I don't know if AT&T will throw a fit.

You might need to add your father as an authorized user? Don't know, just read somewhere.

There are threads here about phone<>iPad swap:

Also consider a prepaid sim from ATT or TMobile.
