    Can someone with an unlocked or jailbroken/unlocked iPhone try using their iPad's micro sim (with an adapter) in their iPhone? I would love to give AT&T $15 a month for 250MB data on my iPhone but can't seem to find any info on the internet yet of people who have definitively found it to work or not work.

    This thread suggests it doesn't work right out of the box, and suggests trying the APN "broadband", but I'm not sure lots of people will see it in that forum, and perhaps this is a better venue to find someone with both the 3G iPad and an iPhone. To download a new profile with custom APN settings, you can use the website help.benm.at

    I've been looking around also to see if you could just use an iPad SIM (which isn't cut out) in an iPhone tray. That way it would just be $30 p/mnth for data & skype calls via 3G unrestrictor.

    The SIM card is activated through iTunes. When you say you want to "activate" the SIM card what are you trying to do? Activate = sign up for service.

    Yes, the only way I know of to activate the micro sim is to use an iPad 3G. AT&T will sell you a "replacement" micro sim at their stores, and then someone could go to an Apple Store or Best Buy and activate the sim/plan with one of the demo models. I would do it, but I live more than a hundred miles from the nearest Apple store. Surely someone must already have a jailbroken/unlocked iPhone and an iPad 3G, or live close to these stores, right?!

    Well, it looks like someone has successfully used an activated iPad micro sim in an iPhone, using the APN: broadband, if this youtube video is to be believed.
