I'm on 200 mins, 200 texts, unlimited meteor to meteor calls and texts and1gb data (for the month, which carries over to the next if you don't use it). €15.

yes - also interested in knowing if its possible to use a cheap data plan sim in an IPad 3G.

IPad sims are about 20 euros a month - so this would be quarter price. cap not an issue - even 500mb a month would be perfect.


Surely it cannot know? IPads are internally same as an IPhone.

Would you would need to keep some call credit on it though as well - to keep the sim alive - even though you will never use it I wonder?

I use a 3 microsim in the iPad works a treat on the €20 a month plan. Just need to top up each month to get AYCED.

For the extra 5er I get 15GB...and using my phone as a wireless hotspot means free internet on my table too. Depends on your needs I suppose, but 1GB just isn't enough for me.

That a very misleading statement. The data offer with 48 ends at the end of April 2012.

From May 1 2012, 48 will charge a whooping 1 EUR per hour for internet.

I cant confirm this is definitely the case, just what I was told in Meteor.
A 3g data sim is apparently recognised as different to a phone sim by the Meteor network even though everything is internally same. Perhaps there may be a s/w or firmware way around this to make the tab appear to Meteor as a phone.
