Ok I finally tried it –  swapping in a T-Mobile SIM into an Apple iPad Air that was running a AT&T SIM for cellular data –  and you know what, it works!

It was as easy as ording a Bring your own tablet T-Mobile Nano SIM at –  http://prepaid-phones.t-mobile.com/sim-card?cm_sp=tmo_landingpage-_-yorktown-_-prepaidSIM

I got the card in a few days, popped out the AT&T SIM and insterted the T-Mobile SIM and set the SIM up for the iPad.

Here are some quick screen shots after I swapped the nano sim. I used a paper clip to pop the old one you, worked well.

After that, you just have to walk through the menus and select the No Additional Data… option

Then setup your Cellular Data Info –  never did it ask me for a SS or Credit Card number –  NICE!

After a few more screens with agreements and information confirmation, you will get this screen

It does take a few minutes for it to all process on the T-Mobile side but once it has you will get a pop-up on your screen saying that it has been successfully activated.  After that, you are all set!
