I have recently moved to quite a rural area and I am using a sim card in a dongle in my laptop for my internet access.

I would like to use the sim card in my ipad, my question is, do I just take the sim out of the dongle and put it in the ipad?

I am cautious because I don't want to break anything and would rather know that I was doing the right thing instead of guessing.

Thank you :)

First off, it depends if your iPad is GSM or CDMA. A GSM iPad does not accept CDMA Sim cards. Other wise, I think you would be fine, transferring the Sim.
