@Rf1  You can take a look at this page, which has all the available sims and tariffs: https://www.o2.co.uk/shop/sim-cards

As far as I'm aware, I could be wrong, but sims have nothing to do with GPRS. I believe it's the device itself that has it.

I tried to Google your device. Is this it? https://www.amacam.net/gps-trackers/am-t22/

I’d go for the classic PAYG at just 1pm’s per mb of data and top up as required.

It won’t as you don’t have an iPad.

Re: Data SIM card for a obd car tracking device

It will work, as a data sim for an iPad is just a datasim... it can be used in any device but for data only...

You may need the apn settings for o2 though.
