Will I be able to use the same simcard which I use in my Vodem in a 3G enabled phone?. If so can I return the vodem device and use the simcard alone and change my plan from 3GB to 1GB plan ?

(Currently I am in a 2 year contract and already a year has been completed already)

I would be really happy if anybody could give information on this.

Thanks

The SIM card would work. The question is if voice is blocked on this account, or not. If not blocked I suppose you won't have a voice plan, which means voice calls could end up very expensive.

Its just a sim you can use it in what ever device you like and use mobile data. Who are you going to return the vodem to? You own it!

Oh...Then I might have to call 777 and ask regarding my vodem account details. But will it be possible, me being in a contract, to change to voice based plan?

If there is no voice plan on the connection its 79 cents per minute.

Well, when I bought the vodem - the store people said I get vodem for free and need not pay any upfront cost if I go into 2 year contract and 3GB plan. I think that made me confuse. Nothing wrong on the Vodafone side though.

As you have been in the contract for 1 year should be able to change to the 1gig plan at no cost.

For a low volume user, that's actually not bad.
