BT Mobile Broadband on iPad

Hi (first post)

 

If I understand it correctly as a Total Broadband customer I should be entitled to a BT Mobile Broadband Dongle which gives me 1Gb of mobile broadband data per month as part of my Total Broadband contract. 

 

If that is correct, does anyone know if I can take the SIM out of the dongle and use it in my iPad.

 

The iPad uses a micro SIM, but I think you can cut down a standard SIM so that it will fit.  However will the BT Mobile Broadband work in the same way as my current H3G SIM?

 

If it is likely that the SIM will work, is it possible to get the SIM on its own and save the £39 for the dongle.

 

Thanks for any help you can give.

 

Regards

Peter

Yes, you can use the BT Mobile SIM in the iPad if you snip it down to size (you can get a special cutter - Google Noosy Micro SIM Cutter).

 

No, you cannot get a SIM without the dongle. You will have to swallow the cost. (Actually only £29, since the price includes £10 worth of usage)
