Use Your iPhone 4 Data Plan With Your iPad 3G!

iPhone 4 Data Plan With Your iPad 3G!
If you are one of those who got iPad 3G, there is a way to connect to 3G network for cheap, that is if you are a iPhone 4 Data plan user.
TUAW tells us that it is a simple matter, They have shown us how we can swap iPhone 4 Micro-SIMs to make use of your iPhone's unlimited data plan with your iPad. and to set up the connection details. Yes we know Apple say it is not possible to interchange the micro SIMs;

  • Are iPhone 4 and iPad micro-SIM cards interchangeable?
    No. Your iPad micro-SIM card will not work with your iPhone.
TUAW was able to insert iPhone 4 Micro SIM into iPAD 3G and make a connection. But could not connect to a the wider net without making following APN data;
Here are the APN settings that are required:
  • APN name: wap.cingular
  • password: CINGULAR1
After that TUAW was sipping through web sites, just like an ant over a sea of molases, just kidding. But it seems that the connection was real and TUAW and anyone will be able to use iPad 3G, without paying twice for data plans.
B ut the question is what happens, if you get a call while browsing over 3g on your iPad?
