Can you put in your own data sim in Touareg 21, for internet hotspot, rather than use VW’s or your mobile phone

As far as I'm aware you can only add an internet hotspot by purchasing a Data Package from VW's partner company Cubic Telecom. This can be done via the WeConnect app or directly from the car's infotainment screen. I purchased an 8GB / 1 month pack for £9.99 just to try it out. It seemed to work fine but if you connect your phone via rSAP (Remove SIM Access Protocol / "Business Telephone"), it overrides the data package and uses your phones data instead. You also need to switch off WLAN in the infortainment settings otherwise the hotspot isn't available. I have a large data bundle with my phone and an app to start my phone's hotspot as soon as it connects to the car's bluetooth so I just use my phone's data instead to power the CarNet functions, satellite view for the sat nav and internet traffic information.
