    Can I put an iPad SIM into an iPhone 3GS (Yes, I know I need an adapter) and use the iPhone as an iPod Touch with data?

    Why do you need an adaptor for a 3GS?

    I had an iPhone 3GS. It had a standard mini-SIM (as opposed to the new micro-SIM size in the iPhone 4). What sized SIM does the iPad take then?

    Micro-sim I believe.

    Anyways, my question isnt regarding the sim sizes whether it will fit or not. I just want to know if I can put the SIM in my iPhone and walk away using the data, or what I need to be able to do that.

    Yes, I believe you can. Just get yourself an adapter and stick it in. :)

    I believe you have to change some APN settings.. As the iPad sim is set for broadband as opposed to phone.

    I activated my iPhone with my iPad sim, it worked fine and went on wifi happily iirc.

    So this does work? Can you put it back into the ipad (basically swap it back and forth)?
