I have purchased from Apple.com an iPad Mini with Verizon LTE and my cell service is with T-Mobile. Seems really easy to activate the prepaid monthly, $30 for 2GB. I would like the month to month as it seems like I would end up around $38 with employer discounts and taxes for 4GB. I do not see how to start a verizon account for month to month if I do not have a phone. Can anyone help.
