How to Get you iPhone Bill to $30 with Unlimited Data (Using the iPad SIM in your iPhone 3G)

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 iPad’s Micro SIM card and your iPhone’s regular sized SIM card.

Step 2: Find an expired debit card, gift card, or a calling card that you don’t need anymore and place your iPhone’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 iPhone’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 iPhone’s SIM tray and insert it into the iPhone.

Step 8: Make sure your iPhone is connected to a WiFi network, then visit 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!
