    Unlimited Plus Data Sim In A Phone?

    Has anyone used an AT&T Unlimited Plus data only sim card in a phone? Would AT&T cancel my line if I tried it? How would it work?

    Technically, it should work. Keep in mind that you may be subject to a per minute rate for phone calls by doing so since a data only plan doesn't include voice minutes (limited or unlimited). Definitely search the terms and conditions of service online before doing so.
    Don't make me turn this car around.....

    I doubt you will even be able to make a call or txt at all, so no per minute rate. You will need some sort of voip solution is you want to make calls.

    Imagine the dynamics will be very similar to the att unlimited data plan for ipads. Many are doing it.

    Personally just suspended my account, temporarily, for the Visible unlimited plan. After the Visible promotion incentives come thru(about 2 months), will switch back to ATT ipad data. Att much faster, although Visible will do, temporarily.

    Very successfully used with unlocked MetroPcs phones(zte, Samsung) and factory unlocked moto g6, including full speed hotspots.

    Will almost certainly will have to configure with the correct att data apn.
