As a person who has the VZW legacy unlimited data PHONE plan, along with the Loyalty discount... The simple answer is YES. It works! The wifi hotspot feature works, too, and will not charge you an extra fee. But... And this is the kicker, you don't want to call customer service at all with the SIM chip in the iPad because they will take notice of that and switch your plan on you!hi all, i want to purchase an ipad with cellular, and i want to put my unlimited verizon sim in it, i heard i can activate the hotspot feature without paying the hotspot fee is this true?
Have you actually tried using it on your iPad? I also have to pay to use the hotspot on my phone, but for some reason it doesn't check if I pay for hotspot on my iPad.I have Verizon unlimited on my iPhone but it's the old Nationwide plan so in order for me to activate a personal hotspot I would need to add that to my plan because when I try to activate a personal hotspot on my iPhone it says I first need to add it to my account so when I go into my account settings through Verizon it says a personal hotspot will cost me $23.00 a month, so to use my celluar iPad on a personal hotspot with my unlimited plan will cost me an additional $23.00 a month. I'm not paying that.
Yes. It would still work.thanks for all the replies guys, i too have the nationwide 700 minutes plan, and it said i need to buy hotspot feature on my iphone. however i stumble upon this thread
but was not sure if it still applies since that thread is quite old and alot of things might've changed since.
so i guess my new question is would it work on the nationwide 700 minutes plan that normally would require you to buy the hotspot feature for like 30 bucks a month? without paying 30 bucks?
