I wanted an iPad Mini on Verizon and the only place local that had them in stock was the Verizon store. I went there and just anticipated buying it and leaving. Well there was more to it. They asked if I wanted a month to month data plan and said it could go on my Verizon phone account. I was like ok... I get by fine with the $20 1GB plan on my iPad 2 so that's what I wanted. Well with a postpaid account on your phone account the minimum is $30 for 2GB so I had to go with that. I was reluctant but said ok only later to find out there was a $35 activation fee. This was ridiculous so when I got home I called Verizon and asked if I had to go with this postpaid plan because I bought the iPad at Verizon. They said no since I paid full price for the device. I ended up canceling the iPad line which would take off the $35 activation fee. However I couldn't activate the iPad with a prepaid plan without a new sim card. I had to go back to Verizon (dealt with someone else) and said I wanted a new SIM card. The girl working couldn't just give me one...she needed the iPad so I went and got it from the car. Then she didn't understand why I wanted the $20 prepaid plan since it has a minimal amount of data. I said its always been fine with my other iPad. So the she said she could activate it for me grrrrrrrr. I just wanted the new sim card so I could activate the data plan on my own. After attempting to activate it, then going in the back to try something, she the just handed it to me to do myself. Has anyone else experienced this? I thought the whole ordeal was ridiculous after I just bought a $559 iPad! By the way FYI, Verizon charges a $70 restocking fee on tablet returns. I happen to read that on my receipt.
