    Need a little help from the experts. I have a company laptop with AT&T air card. They have locked it down that i can not even check my home email or facebook any more. I work on the road and wordering what would be my best route to go. Can I get a personal laptop or tablet and move my company Air (Sim) card into to it? I can move AT&T sim card to another phone and it works.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    You can probably just get an AT&T mifi device and use that. Of course your company may not appreciate you using their data...

    Thanks Mike for the reply...

    The AT&T store said my laptop sim card would not work in a tablet but maybe another laptop. So you are thinking it might work in a mifi and then i could use the wifi on a laptop or tablet. I will check that out. Would it need to be a AT&T mifi..i am guessing. Sorry I am so dumb.

    "Of course your company may not appreciate you using their data..." I promise not to tell them...

    Mike, I got a 5792 Mifi device and it looks like it uses a smaller sim card. :mad:

    You probably need the older elevate device, it takes a larger sim card (I had to get a new sim when changing from my elevate to a liberate).

    If they are diligent, they will figure it out. Odds are, there isn't the time or inclination to do so.
