For quite a while I have been using a regular phone subscription on my iPad Pro 10.5" Cellular to get data on the go (10 GB for €12,50/month; average use is less than 2 GB/month). However, due to the ongoing pandemic I suspect to still travel less in 2022 (my main cellular use case is browsing on the iPad during train rides in the weekends).
Does anyone know a cheap, but long lasting, (EU) data plan for data?
(most dataplans are only valid for 14/30 days it seems and even then they are way more expensive than my current subscription)
Note: my iPad has a physical SIM slot and an embedded Apple SIM, but no eSIM.
PS: I have unlimited data on my iPhone; maybe I should just try its hotspot again? (My previous iPad was WiFi only)
My carrier offers a second SIM card (one-time purchase) where only one of the two cards can be active at a time (it is meant for carkits). I have used that option when I had a WiFi-only iPad. In fact, I have considered doing that again, but they claim that this option is not compatible with my Apple Watch subscription (so I had to chose between the tablet or the watch and chose the watch).
I hope that in the future I can add my iPad (or any other tablet) to my phone subscription like currently can (only) be done with smart watches (for an additional monthly charge).
