Luck seems to be evading those who bought the iPhones that are unlocked having in mind that they are going to take advantage of the unlimited data plan of the iPads micro-Sim, so as to get their handset the best of service. This is because their hope will be shattered as such types of actions are not tolerated by Apple.
This can be proven for those who have doubts by visiting to the Apples iPhone3GS and iPhone 4 frequently asked questions page. In this page the customers are able to be answered on questions regarding their iPhone 4. As expected to appear among the list of questions, is if iPhone 4 and iPad micro-Sim cards interchangeable. The site answers without holding anything back that this is just but a mere dream and its impossible.
The move does not come unexpected bearing in mind that iPhone and iPad tethering had already been ruled out by Apple. It would not come as a surprise if during negotiations between Apple and the carriers in a bid to come up with data transfer policies that are much stricter, they are requested to disallow the porting of MicroSIM’s.
For those of you who love to get things done the easier way and bend the rules, there is still hope for you. I am not saying that it is impossible to get a hacker to enable the interchanging but all am saying is that you should try and get a good one for them to work. This is taking an assumption that the block will have been put in the device and not the MicroSim.
There is also another problem that will arise for those trying to interchange the sims. This would be that the sims have been designed differently with regards to the device that they are going to be put. Provisioned to text, full voice and data services are the iPhone sims while the iPad sim is just for prepaid data services. IT Support
