Data-only SIM cards vs Talk, Text, and Data SIMs

Talk, text, and data SIM cards include access to cellular service, powering calling and texting functionality in addition to internet connectivity (4G and 5G). 

Without it, your service plan can only connect to the internet. 

Data-Only SIMs are configured specifically for devices that do not have any calling or texting options built in, such as tablet devices and mobile hotspots. 

It is not possible to use a talk, text, and data SIM card inside of a device that only allows for internet connectivity.
