    So now that the new iPhone will be using a microsim, just like the iPad. Is there anything that stops me from putting my phone's sim into the iPad's simply to make use of the data?

    I'm deciding on which iPad to get, and I really don't want to pay for more internet access since I don't use all of what I pay for already. If I can't share my 3G data among the two devices I'll probably end up with a wifi only iPad.

    Edit: I know this is a little early to ask, but I'm hoping for some technically minded people to pitch in and see if there is any reason (aside from intentional blocking) that would stop this from happening.
