I have a Verizon Wireless Modem with a USB connection. Has anyone used this USB modem with an iPad? How do you install VZAccess Manager seeing that you didn't get it from the ap store?

I've used this USB modem on two HP and one Sony notebook, an I am now using it with a iMac 27". Sure would be great to be able to use it with an iPad instead of buying a MiFi and paying an additional $60.00 a month.

Doesn't work with an iPad, sorry. You would need a mifi to use the iPad with Verizon wireless.

@ bcaslis, thanks for the speedy reply.

That really cuts down on the usefulness of an iPad. :mad: I'm not going to go to Mickey D's to read my e-mail or check-out MacRumors. :D

Looks like the only thing I'll use an iPad for is as a Digital Portfolio for my Photography and Video business.

Could you plug your 3G phone into that as well?

Depends on the phone. The Supported Devices tab on the product page lists which carriers' phones it works with.
