I am about to go to France for a couple of weeks and I want to use my ipad (3G) while away to purchase ski passes and get some work done.
I also have a iphone 4s which I use as a mobile hotspot when I'm travelling around at home.
I imagine I will buy a 'pay as you go' French SIM (which I would like to buy online before leaving).
I could continue to use the iphone as a hotspot when in France (allowing me to also use my laptop online) so I could buy a SIM for the phone rather than the ipad and redirect the calls that would normally be coming through to my iphone to the French number.
Is this cheaper? Has anyone done this? Are the data limits too restrictive? What would you do?
Any thoughts appreciated.
