If you have a Verizon LTE enabled tablet but find that you use WiFi more than the LTE option, you can save yourself some money and use Verizon’s new pre-paid $5/day plan. Five dollars provides 24 hours of LTE data access with 300 megabytes of data. If you run out of data before the 24hrs is up, it’s not a problem, an additional $5 purchase will get you another 300mb bucket. If you find 1 day and 300mb is just not enough, you can always opt for one of Verizon’s new monthly pre-paid plans that start at $20 a month for 1GB and go up to $80 a month for 10GB. I have have been paying $10 a month for an iPad mini tablet on my Share Everything plan which shares 2GB of data with my phone. Since I don’t travel often and am almost always near WiFi, I find I’m rarely using the LTE option. I might turn it off and go with this $5/day plan whenever the need arises.
