    Is it possible to somehow use the same AT & T data plan on both my IPAD and IPhone? I cancelled my phone service with AT & T. I only want their data plan.

    There have been several Forum members who have the exact same problem and the concencus seems to be 'No' - it is not possible for your iPhone and iPad to share the same data plan. The network service provider 'knows' the identity of the device that the SIM card is inserted into - it's the so-called IMEI number (International Mobile Equipment Identity) - and so they can lock down a data plan to a specific device if they choose to. AT&T have done this, so I'm afraid it can't be done.

    Just switch the sim from your iPhone to your iPad. I know that is kinda annoying but it works. I think.

    You cannot have the same data plan on both devices. What I do is just have a data plan on my iPad and use my iPhone for testing and calling. There's wifi almost everywhere nowadays anyways.

    Can you hot spot the iPhone onto the Ipad? That would be just 1 data plan

    Actually ~ I think you can share plans. There was a member that works for AT&T and posted that all you have to do is go in and they will set it up for you. It is a new service.

    I think.

    I will look for that post. Worth a call though in the mean time.

    I think you could hot spot it? My friend was able to make his iPhone have a hotspot, but I don't know about the iPad.

    When we called (maybe six months ago) the answer was no. To make it even better we have our home DSL through AT&T so we have THREE accounts.

    Ridiculous.

    Looking forward to getting a Verizon iPhone5 and Verizon iPad 2 so I can dump AT&T.



    Well, except for the DSL...
