    Toronto Data Plan for a Car-based IMEI number

    So my car (in Canada) has a 4G LTE device pre-installed from factory and it normally goes through OnStar with AT&T.
    I was able to find the IMEI number of the internet device installed in the car and know where it is located.

    Question I have is, if I wanted to get my own data plan and have the device configured to access internet using my own data plan, is it sufficient for me to call Rogers / Bell / Telus and get a data only plan and provide them with the IMEI number?

    I dont know whether this device has a SIM card in it or not, my assumption is that it doesn't.

    The car is a 2016 Chevy Spark

    Please and thanks for advise and guidance.

    A quick search kind of reveals that it has an embedded chip doesn't sound like it's doable
