    Just speculation, but wonder if someone could try this. I don't have a iPhone4 yet, but if this works I'd move up my purchase plans.

    If ones takes a micro SIM from a iPhone4 and inserts it in an iPad 3G, would it work? Could you effectivly "share" a data plan between iPhone and iPad?

    Its not that simple.

    Each device has its own IMEI number. This is the number given to the cellular towers each time the device connects. AT&T knows what IMEI numbers are for iphones and what ones are for iPads. When an iPad IMEI number connect with a simcard that has an iPhone data plan the connection is rejected from AT&T's side.

    The IMEI number is embeded into the devices chips and changing it is highly illegal.
