    I don't think you can. As far as I know, you'd have to take out a second, separate data plan for your tablet device -- your mobile data plan is non-transferable.

    On the other hand, if you have an unlimited data plan on your iPad with ATT, you can transfer it to your iPad Mini.

    If you have a Verizon iPad you can. Att doesn't detect it and it'll still work. I'm rocking my Verizon iPad mini with att dumb phone unlimited data :) $20 a month and I can use it as a phone

    No I don't,it's my first ipad.Just trying to get maximum usage out of my AT&T data plan.So does AT&T charge an activation fee to start a separate ipad data plan ?

    ----------

    Well I bought the AT&T ipad, maybe I should have gotten the Verizon ipad.

    Your best bet is to ask folks in the know or ATT.

    I don't have an iPhone, only a 3G 1st Gen iPad. When I signed on the now grandfathered unlimited data plan with ATT, no, there was NO activation fee.

    But you say you have an iPhone, so your case is different.

    How are you able to get unlimited data on AT&T for $20?

    I have unlimited data on my AT&T iPhone 5 (grandfathered from original iPhone). Can I just take the sim out of my iPhone 5 and stick it in my iPad mini?

    As stated before it'll work with the Verizon iPad mini not the AT&T one. Just gotta configure it and your good to go,

    ----------

    $10 add a line + $10 unlimited dumb phone data aka media net = $20 data for my non AT&T aka Verizon iPad =) no let but no cap either and I can FaceTime on the go
