    Default Broken home button, need to return how do I swap month to month data service?

    I picked up an iPad 4 on Wednesday for Verizon. I used the iPad to start month to month service. My home button is on the fritz. It takes several presses for the home button to work. I am going to return the iPad back to best buy for a new one. How can I switch my data to the new iPad? Should I keep the SIM card or will I need to cancel my service?

    I honestly would take it to apple. It doesn't matter where you bought it from.

    You don't need to switch the sim. You already started a prepaid account. Just log in using that email to the cellular settings and activate with new SIM card in.

    Yup. That's all it takes. Did this twice within a week, last week.
