$20 for 1GB
$35 for 3GB
$50 for 5GB
I'm looking on Verizon's site...where do you see those plan rates? I've been considering the Verizon MiFi to use either with an iPad or iPod touch, but the prices have always been prohibitive?
I'd also be curious to know if these special prices would include the use of the MiFi with any
wi-fi device? There are ways to restrict its use to only the iPad they sell you (by MAC address would be one way).
If buying an iPad from Verizon gets you these special MiFi rates, and you can still use it with other devices, that's a win.
Even more interesting is Verizon selling the 3G model! I wonder, once Verizon starts rolling out LTE (which I assume uses SIM cards?), could I put one of their SIM in an iPad?
EDIT: I see you provided a link in a later post. Interestingly, the first time I clicked on the FAQ button on the Verizon page, I got a different, much shorter, FAQ list.
