    Would be cool to swap sims in my iPad and iPhone and use this. The iPad has a much better battery. Unfortunately for me the iPad 2 can’t be jailbroke. :/

    Well, I took the plunge and paid for this. only to find that AT&T will not allow calls, on the data lines/plans used for Ipads in the states. Every time I tried to make a call, I was directed to a Prerecorded message, stating calls on this line were not allowed. Now I’m screwed out of $20.

      Redbeard46 did you swap your sim out of your iphone into the ipad before you tried to make a call?
      Swapping the sim you will be using your Iphone account not your Ipad account.

        i dont think his sim card is the problem, as US has AT&T as the only service provider, that might be the cause of the problem…i look up the video in iphoneIslam channel, and they states that they might come to USA to ensure that this apps would be available to US users soon :)
