I'm thinking of getting an iPad2, and wondered if anyone can recommend a PAYG data only micro-sim/plan? I don't think GG do it so I hope they won't mind me asking here. Also I would like to use my iPhone4 as a "Personal Hot -Spot" ie, as a modem for a laptop. Can anyone tell me how to do that, please? Or is GG not able to accommodate that, even though i think O2 can. As you can tell, I'm mightily confused!

I wouldn't recommend 3 as their 3G signals are unreliable, they also received the most complaints according to Ofcom and they have a dreadful customer service.

If you are fortunate enough to need to operate your iPad somewhere that has good 3 coverage then they actually work really well. But if you move around a lot then you are likely to encounter more gaps in their coverage than other networks.
I don't know if this site has a vested interest anywhere but they offer a comparison of iPad SIM only deals...

i would look at 3 to be honest they aload of different plans as is broadband deals and all you can eat data pay as you go aswell . if you live near a 3 store i would call in and ask , i have three for my dongle on payg have done so for about 4 years never had a problem and their coverage is fantastic , even in the far north of wales i got a good signal , so i would seriously consider three

Thanks everyone, i was really hoping that GG would indicate when /if it was thinking of introducing 'tethering' and 'data-only' SIMs, but no such luck. I think I'll try '3', they seem to be as good and as bad as any. And there's a shop near me!
