    Okay so I have a iPhone 4 on Straight talk unlimited for $45 ....I want to use the same plan on my iPad but I don't want to pay a extra 45 plus the 45 for my phone... So is there a way I can use 2 sims on one account or clone my sim or something like that? If so please let me know. I'm open for suggestions also ... I have iPad 2 black wifi+3G 32gb on AT&T.

    The iPad is not a phone (doesn't have the hardware), so you can't use a phone SIM in it; it's data only. Straight talk may have a WiFi hotspot you can use, but you'll still have to pay for a separate plan. I'm pretty sure there is no cloning, either.

    Generally speaking, here in the states, if you don't use a hotspot, you can only hook the iPad up to 3G/4G via AT&T or Verizon. Sorry.

    No it works, I took my sim out my iPhone and put it into my iPad and the Internet worked perfectly but...who wants to keep switching sims? I basically need this because I just got this iPad because my last one was stolen and I can't track it cus it's not connected to the Internet... So that's my problem. ://

    The two micro-SIM cards are not interchangeable. The micro-SIM in the iPad is designed specifically for flexible data, while the iPhone 4 micro-SIM handles voice and additional functions. Although both micro-SIM cards are the same size, they will only work in the intended device.
