I decided that my new iPad needed to have data service as my old WiFi iPad wasn't enough for my personal needs. I was just wondering what plans people decided to go with. This is for Verizon iPads only. Currently, I have the $30/2GB pre-paid plan but considering the Share everything plan even though the iPad is my only device w/ Verizon. It's $30/4GB + $10 for the device so really, $40/4GB, double what I'm getting now. If I go over my 2GB plan, I have to pay $10 for an additional 1GB anyway and losing out on 1Gb. There will be times where I know I'll need it, times when I don't. Other than the obvious increased allotment of data + $10, are there any other benefits or drawbacks to signing up for the Shared plan? Meaning, are there other services available? Under pre-paid, it says " Prepaid Mobile Broadband Plans do not include Verizon Wi—Fi Access, Text Messaging or roaming." So it leads me to think I would get all of that under a shared plan? It didn't look like the I had to sign up for 2 year service since it isn't subsidized (and purchased directly from Apple). How easy is it to put svc on hold if you're on the share everything plan? What I like about the pre-paid plan is that I can turn it on/off when I need or if I'm out of the country for a bit and there aren't any activation charges. I'm not sure if the same can be said of the shared plan. Anyone have helpful thoughts/comments?
