Does Optus support using a data only SIM in a phone?
From a tech perspective it should work, but will Optus support that setup?
Specific case: I have an S10 and S7. I want a data SIM in the S7 to serve as a hotspot.
The compatible device link in the data SIM product doc links to the general 4G compatibility page, so at face value it appears to be supported.

I have used one before but I do vaguely recall it's either not support or not permitted. It may have been Telstra where I read that but I can't be sure.
Edit: Just had a good look through the forum and I can't see anything to say you can't. Maybe it was my imagination where I read you couldn't. I do doubt they would offer support on it. I guess you could always jump on the chat and find out.
Maybe this is what I read.

why waste a good phone? how about use a 4G portable router for under $20?
