    I searched but maybe overlooked the answer, but will a Sprint iPad rMini accept a Verizon SIM from my iPad 4?

    Yes. If it's an active sim and you don't plan to deactivate it, it will be fine.

    Thanks!

    I just found this, and was thinking it was a no-go?

    The end result is this (unless Verizon and Sprint change their policy):

    Verizon iPad: Can be used with Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile
    Sprint iPad: Can be used with Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile
    AT&T iPad: Can be used with AT&T and T-Mobile
    T-Mobile iPad: Can be used with T-Mobile and AT&T

    The issue is if you have to get Verizon to activate your sim. Verizon only activates iPads that are in there system. The iPad hardware supports all carriers. If you have an active Verizon sim it's a non issue. Just swap in the sim, it will work.
