    Using your BB's SIM card in an Aircard

    Advertisement



    I tried searching and could not find any answers...pretty much anywhere, so here goes.


    Here's my question. I recently was told from an AT&T rep that if you put in your sim card from your phone into an aircard for your laptop, data services would not work. I didn't believe him. So i purchased a 3G aircard, threw my 8310's 3G sim card into it, configured the connection for wap.cingular instead of isp.cingular and bam, on the internet surfing at about 3mb, pretty fast!! So, obviously this works and AT&T lied to me, I figure if I'm paying for unlimited data through BIS, I should be able to browse as much as possible right? So that's what I'm doing. The huge question is, will they charge me? Technically this is NOT tethering as I am not even using my phone (as a modem, or gateway), but my unlimited data services from my plan and the sim from my existing line. I won't bother calling AT&T since the original rep told me this wouldn't even work.

    Keep in mind this is just like putting your sim card in another phone such as a blackjack or another bb and the data works just fine......

    So what do you guys think??
