On the iPad I want to use the grandfathered data plan on, I simply go into that iPad's cellular settings and choose the "transfer service from another iPad" screen. If the "unactivated" iPad is missing its SIM card I understand the transfer cannot take place. That's why I mentioned a SIM must be present.

    As far as I know, our grandfathered plans cannot be shared, only transferred or move. I'd be surprised if AT&T sanctioned popping out SIM cards, but if that's what serves you best, I'd do the very same. I've got arthritis in my hands and those little SIM trays give me fits

    Thanks for clarifying. That makes sense for what you're doing with your accounts.

    I'm just popping out the SIM card because it's easy for me, and I had AT&T OK it and note it in my account before I started doing it. If I get a mini, I might try transferring back and forth if needed.

    I have the original iPad and iPhone 4s and love both. My wife has never been into "gadgets". I bought my wife her first iPhone (Blackberry user) last year and she can't put it down except when using her Nook. I'm thinking about buying her an iPad Mini for Christmas. I'll upgrade my iPad when next year's model comes out and pass the original iPad down to the kids.

Like another poster mentioned, I took their advice and had a paragraph attached to my account indicating I never would intentionally deactivate the grandfathered data plan. Thanks to y'all for such great information. It's why I sought out your forum to begin with.
    I have the iPad 4 and the Mini.. I don't even notice much difference in Screen Resolution. if I was expecting the two with a magifying glass and if I was a critic I may.. but I love the Mini..

    I have an Ipad 3 and just ordered a white 16GB WIFI Mini tonight. I played with it at Best Buy and really liked it. I think the screen looks better than I was expecting.

    Once you've been here a while, you'll come to realize that we're very fond of squirrels on the iPF.

    Thanks, a doctor I worked with a few years ago called me a squirrel when he was mad at me. I embraced the name,lol. He did apologize later and we laughed about it after that. Never did find out the reasoning behind it though.

    Great story and glad that you both can laugh at it later!

    By the way...some of us have a real fondness of squirrels, as seen in the "What I see in my Backyard thread!" ...we have the official Sci Squirrel Training School there!
