Title.

1. So I just placed my order for pickup at the store near me (Ardmore, PA) and they said they'll notify me when it's ready. I won't receive a notification until they're actually open right?

2. The money hasn't been taken yet. Does that mean I pay when I get there or is it getting taken out when it's ready to be picked up?

3. I'm getting the 32GB 4G Verizon model. Do I pay in person for my data or do I do it digitally after the iPad has been purchased?

4. Does data rollover or do I have to make a new payment every month?

5. Anything else I should know?

Thanks for the help ladies and gents :)

1. Probably. Notifying you hen they're closed would be silly.

2. Pay when you get there.

3. You sign up right from the iPad after you buy it.

4. No rollover. You pay every month and it's use it or lose it.

5. Yeah, you should probably get a 64GB AT&T... :p

Well I can't answerr all of your questions, but I can help with some

You can activate your data plan after you pick up the ipad. You can either do prepaid or postpaid. Data does not roll over. If you are on a pre-paid plan, you can disable and re-enable the account when necessary. However, you will pay for an entire month.

1. Yeah makes sense

2. It's safe to assume that if my card was accepted online it'll go through at the store right? (It's a PayPal Mastercard that's gonna draw from bank account as a fallback that doesn't have enough money so that's why I'm worried)

3. Gotcha.

4. Well I definitely won't have any problem using it.

5. lol I got 32GB. Can't afford 64. It won't be that much of an issue will it?

Another question I forgot to ask: What kind of speeds can I expect in non LTE areas with Verizon?
