Yup, 1gb for $20,Hi guys! Has anyone confirmed the availability of the 1GB for $20 for new subscriptions with Verizon?
This plan would be very convenient as opposed to the $15 for 250MB with AT&T....
Any idea how much data streaming eats up while streaming video. would 2 or 3 or 5 gigs be enough if one streans one or two movies (~90mins each) a week along with normal usage, like email and web browsing?We were doing it moving video files up and down from Dropbox just as a test for LTE. I work for a media organization, we've been hammering on the 3 for the better part of a week.
On a 2gb data plan we realized that we could max the plan out midway through streaming the third HD movie.Any idea how much data streaming eats up while streaming video. would 2 or 3 or 5 gigs be enough if one streans one or two movies (~90mins each) a week along with normal usage, like email and web browsing?
I hear you! I blew thorough a couple of hundred doing the stuff you did. I turned it off awhile ago. Have you used the hotspot feature yet? I blew through most of my data testing out the hotspot capabilities. I had two devices plus my iPad downloading at the same time.... Poor Verizon. Or poor me for wasting data?Here in KC I'm on Verizon LTE getting 10 to 16mbps and it's faster than my home 25mbps connection. The down side of course all the new found speed makes it to easy to enjoy your mobile device and blow thru data in mere minutes. Few speed tests and tested some HD video and YouTube and not even trying ate up 600mb of the 1gig. Until they have 20 or 30 gigs available at reasonable rates LTE is like a Bugatti sitting in the garage and no paved roads to drive on. Kind of a waste.
It auto-renews by default on the same day each month, but you can cancel or change your plan at any time.Wirelessly posted (Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; CPU iPhone OS 5_1 like Mac OS X) AppleWebKit/534.46 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/5.1 Mobile/9B179 Safari/7534.48.3)
I got a question. I'm new to having a cellular data iPad. I got the Verizon iPad today. I haven't signed up for a data plan yet but I'm curious as to whether or not the plans auto-renew or it just shuts off data until you renew it? I'd prefer to be able to choose what I want to do when my plan expires.
If you are saying to buy an ATT sim for the Verizon iPad unfortunately despite what the "Front Page" says, it won't work. You can't activate an INACTIVE ATT iPAD SIM on the VZW iPad nor can you RENEW an already active once once it expires. It gets rejected as an unknown device by the iPad. Same thing if you activate it online. Won't work.Okay. No biggie. Just buy an AT&T sim card and use it in the iPad to use AT&T HPSA+ network
