I chose Verizon for my ‘new’ iPad. And I wouldn’t fault you if you did choose AT&T. You have to go with what works in your area. Am I right? Tell me I’m right. Or tell me that everyone that went with AT&T was crazy. Just don’t try to tell me Verizon was wrong.
Here is how you set it up:
1 – Visit the Settings app. It’s the one that looks like gears. And you’ll see a split screen with options on the left, and content on the right. You’ll want to select ‘Cellular Data’.
2 – In the ‘Cellular Data’ content on the right side, you’ll want to turn on the switch that says Cellular Data and then under it near the bottom select ‘View Account’.
3 – You’ll need to pick a plan:
> 1GB/month for $20
> 2GB/month for $30
> 5GB/month for $50
> 10GB/month for $80
There are very few people who will need 5GB per month, let alone the 10GB plan. However, you might find it is very easy to go over the 1GB. I think the 2GB plan is a nice sweetspot. There is also rumor that they’re planning on bumping that up to 3GB.
4 – After you pick your plan it will ask for your email and password. You can log in to change your plan, add more data, or cancel your data.
Here is how it works. You buy a plan, and they send you an email each month reminding you that they’re going to charge you for the next months service unless you turn it off. You are not on a contract, and you can cancel the data at any time.
5 – You give em your credit card and authorize the account and you’re off to the races on some seriously fast internet. Where I live, Verizon LTE is faster than Comcast Xfinity.
It’s a pretty sweet setup. You’ll be glad you got the LTE model. Go enjoy your data!
