Is a Telstra 4G SIM transplantable to a 4G modem?

I have a Telstra 4G SIM in a tablet—can it be placed in a 4G modem (e.g. a prepaid modem, replacing the SIM in there)?

 

TIA

If both the tablet and the modem have mini-SIM (as opposed to micro-SIM or nano-SIM) slots, then yes, you can physically “transplant” the SIM between the devices.

The opinions and sentiments expressed above are mine only, and do not necessarily reflect Telstra's views or position.

Great, thanks—the local T-Shop fellow just said 'no', but I think he'd rather sell me the modem on a plan!
