    Currently my unlimited data sim is in my iPad, I was wondering of anyone knows if I can move it to the hotspot device freely? Thanks

    What's your service? Verizon is able to hotspot.

    You will need some powerful thrusters, and a few kilograms of powdered hydrogen. However, I don't recommend transforming your iPad into a jet pack at home.

    This thread did not live up to expectations created when reading it's title.

    Truth is that yes, you can move it to a jet pack without issue, Verizon is bound by an agreement to allow this among 4G devices.

    Yes, VZW does allow the SIM swap. However, I'm unsure about the details, but I think the swap is from a 4G device to an iPad. But, it seems like you're doing the reverse. I have a Jetpack and it uses a regular sized SIM, so you would need to get an adapter. Secondly, I'm not sure if it will be viable once switched because VZW can detect your iPad. When I switched my iPad and Jetpack SIMs, my online account automatically pointed to me using my iPad for the data.

    Or just call VZW and ask them.

    Seems a little much, the iPad is not that heavy.

    But if it's to become a jetpack, it must be able to lift the weight of a human??
