    My goal is to get my iPhone 5 on a one of Verizon's iPad plans. Here is what I've done so far:

    1. Got the IMEI from my iPad 3, went to the Verizon store and signed up for a post-paid data plan
    2. I told them I planned to use an iPad mini and was able to convince them to activate a nano sim even though the IMEI was for a device that takes a micro sim
    3. Put the nano sim in my iPhone 5

    Right now, I am able to get 3G data only on my iPhone 5 and the phone says "Waiting for activation"

    Has anyone tried this? Any ideas why I can't get LTE?

    The only thing I can think of is to get an adapter and put the nano sim in my iPad and activate a pre-paid plan. Although I wouldn't expect a different result.
