Forgive me for being stupid. I have never used a hotspot on anything but my mifi. How does the Verizon hotspot on the Ipad work? Do you connect a cable to the Ipad? Or does it just send out a signal like my Verizon mifi? Will the Ipad have a way of making the signal secure? The only time I would use it is to connect with my laptop or my wife's Ipad. I just do not understand the process. Thinking of getting rid of my mifi and the $30 every month.
