    Can I share Telus SIM card between phone and Android tablet ?

    I have Telus HSPA phone with 1GB data a month.
    Is there way to use and share this between 2 devices ?
    Ideally to have 2 SIM cards assigned to one plan ?

    Thanks

    I think the tablet share plan is gone now, but if you have/get a recent Android you can use the personal WiFi hotspot feature. Possibly coming soon to iPhones as well.

    Yeah, I do that now, but I like to make it easy for my wife...
    So there was a plane where they offered 2 SIM cards on one account ?

    Thanks

    Not quite, 2 SIMs, 2 numbers, but the tablet's was only $15/mo and just drew its data from the associated phone's bucket. IMO personal WiFi hotspot is better in all respects except battery performance and ease of use (by a small margin).

    Does any provider in Ontario have pay as you go data plan that's reasonable ?
    It would be great to purchase bulk of data with unlimited time to use it
