iPhone 4 micro-SIM not Compatible with iPad

Not sure how much of a surprise this will be to most people, but if you take a look at the iPhone FAQ section on Apple’s UK site, you’ll notice that it says that the iPhone 4 micro-SIM can’t be used in the iPad.

V3.co.uk reports that Nick Wilkins, press relations manager at O2, told them that if you place an iPhone 4 micro-SIM in an iPad, the SIM will not work.

“The micro-SIMS for the iPhone are set up to allow voice calls, SMS messages and data functionality, whereas the iPad micro-SIM is provisioned to allow pay-as-you-go data transfer only,†Wilkins told V3.co.uk.

So, anyone hoping to switch micro-SIMs between the two and share data allowance, for example, will be disappointed. If you just want to revert your micro-SIM to your old phone that uses a standard SIM, according to V3.co.uk, O2 has said that this will be possible using their supplied adaptor.

That's probably on that network only. People have successfully cut their regular sim cards to micro size and used them in the iPad.
