    Nope. Those plans are long since expired from late 2000s. I just use my jailbroken iPhone for unlimited tethering that has no throttling

    Check with your carrier and see what data plans they have for iPad. Expect to pay a bit of you want to use it exclusively with mobile data

    Check with your carrier. I can only speak for Verizon, but if you have an unlimited plan, you can add it to that plan (I believe you can add it to any plan for a small monthly upcharge.)

    It depends on how many lines you have.

    I don’t have unlimited and pay $10/month to include my iPad on my 8gb plan. Unlimited is quite a bit more.

    I've always gotten a cellular iPad but have been thinking about just getting the wifi version this go around for two reasons:

    -The plans cost too much. For $30 dollars a month, I get 3 GB that I often go over on. And I honestly feel like I dont even use the cellular that much. We're talking about close to $400 dollars a year then for the cellular connection. So honestly I'm thinking I'm going to put that $30 dollars away every month, and in three years when its time to upgrade my iPad I'll have more than enough saved away for it.

    -Tethering and wifi are more available than ever. And with as much as I fly, the cellular plan isn't really getting me much anyways.

    Johnny365 your wrong that these unlimited 4g lte tethering plans expired long ago in the 2000s T-mobile in August this year still had the $25 extra a month unlimited 4g lte tethering addon. They ended it though :(

    AT&T has the unlimited iPad data for $30 a month if you get the
    LTE iPad. That’s an extra $130 for the LTE iPad plus $30 a month for the data though.

    Second entry, unlimited for $29.99 with autorenew (it’s $34.99 for prepaid). I don’t have an iPad IMEI to test with to be sure that the iPad qualifies, but this is the plan that people are talking about, I think.

    It does says it’s subject to slower speeds after 22 GB.

    If you put an AT&T sim in your iPad, you can sign up directly through settings/cellular data. It is $35 for 1 month or $30 per 30 days with auto renewal. I usually sign up for the 30 days when I go on vacation.
