I have an AT&T iPad 2 - figured I'd try Verizon for the iPad 3 to see if I get better service, but have never used them. I keep getting conflicting information from various Verizon reps on their plans. I figured it would be like AT&T, I can turn it on for a month if I need or want to and then not renew the next month. It seems fairly easy. What Verizon is saying is that I would have to register each time I turn it off and get a new telephone number for the iPad...AND that the 4G is more money. Plus even though there's no long term contract I sill have to pay monthly with Verizon...which I don't do with AT&T...Seems like AT&T is easier to stay with. Any advice? Tx.
