Order: AirPods 2

    Has anyone tried getting a regular phone SIM to use in an iPad Pro on AT&T so you can get a cheaper rate? I have 3 iPhones and one iPad Pro. I would like to take advantage of 40 per line for 4 devices like T-Mobile will do. I just can’t use T-Mobile after a failed attempt because of where we live. I would like to see if I can get by without telling them one line is an iPad and set it up so I can get a lower rate. Does anyone know if this will work on the iPad without a problem. Thanks

    I feel like she did this but she is on T-Mobile though.

    I'm also curious to know as well.

    I don't see this working. I'm not sure what would happen if you put a phone SIM in there, BUT if you are paying for the data only rate then THAT is the SIM they will send, so you'd have to swap it with a phone on the line and then that phone would not get calls.

    HOWEVER you can get good functionality with a little help......

    Check from about the 5:50 mark!

    Yea T-Mobile can work with their special Digits app, BUT anyone can do it with Google Voice. She explains the options at the 5:50 mark.

    Thank you. Just to be clear. I want to pay the phone price and use the sim for data only on my iPad. It’s more expensive to pay for 3 phones and a iPad than 4 phones. T-Mo would do this but not AT&T.

    AH I think I got you, you need the 4th line to qualify for the best deal! So basically you would like someone with AT&T and with a cellular iPad, to take their phone SIM and put it in the iPad and see if the data works. Unfortunately I no longer have an iPad with cellular, plus I'm on T-Mobile. BUT I will reach out and see if I can find someone.

    I've asked around but I don't know anyone with a cellular iPad with AT&T.

    I just picked up a cellular iPad. Is this something you still need to know?
