Agree, i use multi sim with my iPad too and cut it up myself, still do not understand why the telcos dun want to wake up. Obviously they know this is one loophole which is being exploited!

SBH, It means an additional SIM card that uses the data plan from your current phone plan. All telco offer this, you probably need to pay a few dollar more.

SBH.. just go to them ask for multi-sim card.. ask them u want to use in ipad.. they will cut for u. n install. additional $15 per month

its more economical if u r on unlimited plan already.. so tis additional card will be tag with your current sim

i am on same multi sim plan for my ipad.

Since you got mobile broadband, throw away the dongle and get a mifi device which was mentioned by others in this thread. You can even cancel yr iphone data plan cos yr iphone will forever be on "wifi" from yr mifi device. This is the cheapest based on yr usage pattern.

If you ask me how to best save money and use internet on the move. I will just get the iphone with the iphone data plan (up to 12GB). If my computer needs internet, i will tether the iphone with my laptop. I'll get a multi sim which is only $5 a month for me for my ipad. It's basically not much more but I get all the connectivity i need.
