How to use the iPad unlimited data plan on your iPhone

Apple, with AT&T, has managed to provide a very attractive unlimited data plan to use with the iPad 3G. Since the iPad 3G uses a microSIM and the iPhone uses a regular SIM, it isn’t as simple as trying to pop in the the microSIM in the iPhone SIM card tray and using the unlimited data package.


Hijinks Inc. have posted a great guide on how to get this working. You need to change the iPhone’s APN settings as well as make a sturdy adapter for the microSIM to fit in, which can then be fit into the iPhone SIM card tray. The adapter can be made out of an old credit card/plastic card etc. Also, you need to have a jailbroken iPhone since APN changer has to be installed from Cydia to change the settings.
