Not sure where or who to better ask â€” Apple or Verizon â€” so I'm asking here in case somebody already knows. If I were to globally reset my iPad3 in preparation to gift it (as opposed to sell it), does my associated Verizon cellular account get affected? I'm assuming not because the data plan is associated with the SIM card and not the iPad itself? I'm not sure. Can I therefore continue subscribing to Verizon's prepaid service using my existing account totally intact despite the change in Apple ID? (which I want to do in order to transfer my own contents to a new iPad4) And would Verizon know or care? Would Apple know or care?
