    I have a question that I am hoping somebody can help me with.. Well I have the Galaxy Note 2 from Verizon and I was thinking of getting an iPad mini. I was thinking if I pick up a Verizon ipad mini I can just swap sim cards back and fourth..Would that work??

    Swapping the sims would really be that easy? So if I pull out the SIM in my iPhone 5 and put it in my ipad mini I will have unlimited data on my ipad?

    Can't AT&T (I have AT&T) tell that I am doing this? Does it really not matter?

    Verizon can't do anything about it while they are using the LTE spectrum they licensed, so they don't.

    AT&T cares and will send you nasty grams.

    It may be a moot point anyway. My company is taking my company cell phone back and giving me a BlackBerry with unlimited web and hotspot capability. I will be canceling my iPad plan and just keeping my unlimited iPhone 5 data. Or I could just kill my iPhone data plan altogether and downgrade to the cheap 250MB plan and just use the hotspot on my iPhone as well.
