As we know data usage has surpassed voice usage on mobile phones.
I have an iPhone but hardly use any minutes, instead I text and email. Knowing the SMALLEST iPhone bill possible is in the $80/month range which is a waste considering I’m not using any voice minutes. Well, with a pen knife, expired credit card, a little scotch tape, a website, and an iPad SIM you can lower your iPhone bill to a flat $30 a month if you don’t mind losing the texts.
Here is how you do it:
Step 1: Remove both your iPadâ€™s Micro SIM card and your iPhoneâ€™s regular sized SIM card.
Step 2: Find an expired debit card, gift card, or a calling card that you donâ€™t need anymore and place your iPhoneâ€™s SIM card flush with the top edge and trace an outline of it.
Step 3: Take a pair of scissors and cut out your SIM template.
Step 4: Place your Micro SIM card on top of your template and line up the contact points with your iPhoneâ€™s SIM. Then trace around it.
Step 5: Using an razor blade, cut out the middle of your template to make room for the Micro SIM.
Step 6: Next place a small piece of scotch tape on the backside of the template to keep the Micro SIM from failing out.
Step 7: Place the Micro SIM into your shiny new adapter and then place it into the iPhoneâ€™s SIM tray and insert it into the iPhone.
Step 8: Make sure your iPhone is connected to a WiFi network, then visit http://unlockit.co.nz and tap Continue.
Step 9: Tap Custom APN, then enter Broadband in the APN field.
Step 10: Leaving the remaining fields blank, tap Create Profile, then tap Install, followed by Install Now on the popup.
Step 11: Tap Done, disable your WiFi and bask in the glory of $30 a month unlimited 3G.
Not bad if you ask me! to save a cool $40 a month! Thanks to Tim for submitting this tip!
