    Can you get an additional SIM card, for a 3 network, 4G, pay monthly, Mobile BB Account?

    Think you will find you can get 2 different number sims attached to one account.

    But I don't think you can have 2 sims with the same number as i would think it would confuse the network if say both sims were using the network at the same time.

    But this is my armchair opinion. I await to be proved wrong.

    I've got a MiFi Dongle, fitted with a Pay Monthly 4G SIM, and was thinking of getting a Tablet or similar, with built in 4G, to use when travelling (saves carrying and charging the MiFi Dongle), with both SIMS using the same account and data allowance.

    Yes it is technically possible to get 2 sims to share the same allowance.
    Vodafone definately do it as i have that set up for some of our sales guys.
    Not sure about 3 , give them a call, they are usually quite helpful ..


    Robin58 is quite right in the fact that they cant be a clone of each other (same number)
