Data Share Sim plan



I'd be grateful for some help please.


I ordered a new phone for my wife but while I was on the phone with Telstra I changed my mobile plan and also agreed to try the $5 data share plan so that I could share date between all my 3 devices; my mobile, my wife's mobile, and my IPad.


I was sent 6 new Nano sims! 


One had my wife's existing mobile number on it so I put that in her new phone and I put one in my IPad. That leaves me with 4 SIM cards that I don't know what to do with.


I want to be able to share date between the 3 devices while keeping my and my wife's existing phone numbers. Do I need to use one of these sims in my phone even though it has a different number attached?


Any ideas would be appreciated.

Hi Technofool

Thanks for the post. 


Six sim cards in definitely a few more than required. If you chat with us at we can securely access your account and advised what sim cards are active and can be used to share the data.
