Hi

I have a sim card (small in stature)  which I have never used.  Its PAYG with money already paid to the sim. It has a phone number  but was intended for use in a tablet .      [I havent managed to set the tablet  to accept the sim (old story , not for this query). ]

 

Would this PAYG sim card be able to be used in a mobile phone (not smart phone).

Yes, but if it is a data only sim for a tablet it won't be any use for calls.
You do get the use of texts though.

Brill I only use texts . Even tho I have a phone I can hear with I'm still nervous of calling as the sound isn't pukka.
So am I right? I can remove the sim card from the tablet and pop it into my clam shell and use it to text on holidays for example when a few people can be warned of the different number I'm using. That way the money bought on the card wont be wasted . Hope Ive got it right M15

Yes Jenny, I get 100 texts each time I top up my data sim.
I'm pretty sure all data tariff sims are the same.
Probably worth you asking customer services on live chat though as I've had my sim a few years and things may have changed (acknowledging how often O2 change T&C's)
