Can’t really help you but I got visible and it’s an amazing phone plan. 25 for unlimited everything on Verizon network.

Was the sim originally provisioned with the iPhone or with the iPad?

i ordered it from visable for my google pixel 3axl i think i tryied the ipad first no luck

A sim card is normally associated with your devices IMEI number at the time it is provisioned (activated). So it is likely tied to your pixel. One sim (or equivalent), one device. Additional devices require their own separate sims and phone numbers. On T-Mobile I have 3 phone numbers and 3 sims (or their equivalent), one each for my phone, iPad and Watch. That way they can charge me a monthly fee for each device (phone number, imei number).
