    Getting my 3g 02 unlimited internet to work on my Ipad 2 3G

    Hi everyone,

    My new ipad 2 3g arrived today and i was planning on using my mobile phone micro sim out of my iphone as i get unlimted internet on my plan. When i put the micro sim into the ipad device it shows up in the left hand corner and in the settings screen. But when i try to access safari it tells me to take out a plan.

    I read prior to purchasing the ipad that it was possible but i may need to change some settings.

    Or is there an alternative way to use my unlimted plan?? I did hear something about MIFI??

    Please could someone point me in the right direction

    Many thanks Marc

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    I don't know if the sim out of your phone would work, so I can't advise you there, someone else may chime in with a way forward. If your iPhone is at least a 3GS or higher you could make it a personal hotspot and then your iPad could tether to it. Have a look on your phone and see if Personal Hotspot is available, it should be third from the top. A word of warning though, some telcos will charge for this service, I have heard a figure of $20 a month, but the catch is they may want to change your plan to do this and as you have an unlimited plan you may not want to go this route. A mifi device is a portable modem/router from which you can connect up to 5 devices I believe and this will come with its own plan too, although here Australia, you can just top up when and if you want with this. You have a lot to think about. Good luck!
