The plan for the iPad will be more flexible, and cost you less if you really do turn it off. The benifit of the iPhone hotspot is that you can use it with more than the iPad, any Wi-Fi device can connect to it.Originally Posted by NYHorsewoman
I don't 'know' that Verizon has stopped unlimited planns, so check with them. If they have, or do, it will probably affect all phones, not just the iPhone. Also, as long as you don't let your current plan laps you will probably be grandfathered to the unlimited plan.
