SIM cards mobile broadband

Answered

Hello,

 

I have a prepaid telstra mobile broadband plan and I would like to buy another telstra prepaid mobile broadband sim card activate it (I assume it would be a different number to my existing SIM) and switch between using the two SIM cards in my telstra mobile wifi modem (it's unlocked).  The reason is that the existing service allows me to use the SIM to make phone calls whereas the new service SIM (with cheaper data rates) does not. Is this possible?

 

Thanks for your help.

yes, they have a SIM slot and on pre-paid are just like a mobile service and will pick up the details based on the SIM card in the device. Smiley Happy
