    ****UPDATE ****

    YES it does work. I bought an Unlocked MiFi from Amazon and stuck my Unlimited iPad SIM inside and changed the APN to Broadband. Bingo! Works like a charm. The MiFi has stronger antennas than my iPhone 4 so the data speed is faster. YAY!!!!

    Can I use this technique to put a iPhone sim into a mifi, and share data with a ipad?

    What repercussions are there for using a iPhone sim in a mifi?


    any updates to this ?
    TIA

    Any update on this? Does a grandfathered iPad SIM with unlimited work in a mifi with LTE? (Considering you upgraded to the new iPad and are using that LTE enabled SIM) Was thinking with the Sierra 754S?

    I would think you'd have to use an LTE MIFI with an LTE iPad Sim. I have an unlimited data LTE iPad so I'm curious to try it.
