Data sim



I bought a prepaid data sim card few months ago, and I wonder if these sim cards only work on tablet or if they would work on a smarphone as well?


I have a spare smartphone that I could use just for data.


Maybe a dumb question but I wanted to make sure before adding some data on the sim.


Thank you very much.

Re: Data sim

it might work on some android phone, but not with iphone as you cannot modify the apn settings on iphone


for android just simply use the APN for data simcard ( connect or connectme )

Re: Data sim

Hi @Robzer, mobile broadband SIM's are designed specifically for tablets or mobile modems. If  this is used in a mobile then the system will automatically bar it.
