Is it possible to get a data sim card attached to my account on a casual data (and voice) plan with no monthly charges?

I don't want to go down the Prepay road, i'd rather have it on the same bill as my Vodafone Mobile.

Data only sim must have data plan attached.

Is it possible then to have two SIM cards linked to a single data account? Say, I've got a You Choose with 1GB data addon, but I'd like to have two SIM cards, one for the phone (with both voice and data), and the other for my Vodem which only has data enabled on it?

You have to be selected as Trusted by a moderator.  It's not automatic.

I don't think so, I think this is only available to corporates with 50+ data cards.

bonkie.  the answer is no.

I tried a few months back.

At the moment, I use my e61 as a modem when I'm doing light stuff as it is only UMTS (where I have coverage).  If I need to do something bandwidth intensive I take the sim out of my phone, stick it in the hsdpa data card (soon to be vodem for my macbook) and use that.

E61 as a modem is good for abotu 90% of the time, and you can still take calls/sms.  Batt life just sux, I have yet to find a good usb charger for my e61.

I'm debating getting an E71 because it has hsdpa, but it is way exp.

NO I don't think you're special, but definately worthy of being trusted ;-)
