    If I have the Verizon version of both of these, can I swap the sim (?) cards so I can use either one of them as needed on data without paying double connection fees?

    Yep. Just move the SIM.

    So the sims are the same size? Are they difficult to change by myself? Sorry if these sound like stupid questions.

    It's just a matter of using the right tool to pop open the SIM slot door and move the sim from one to the other... and I should have noted above the SIM swap should work fine for LTE coverage... but if you're going to need legacy CDMA/3G support - you'd need to go to your 'MyVerizon' account and on the number for your iPad - enter the CDMA MEID in order for it to be recognized by Verizon's CDMA network.

    Thanks for all your help. I just didn't want to invest in the a cellular version of the new Mini, if it couldn't be done. I would have just saved money by buying a wifi only Mini and tether it to my 5s.

    Thanks again!

    From a practicality standpoint... tethering would work too without having to do anything but enable it...

    Does tethering give you a similar speed?

    From the tethering I've done - it's similar.

    I believe you'll also need a sim adapter. The iPad 3 uses a micro sim. The Mini uses a nano sim.

    Crikey... I forgot about that too... If the OP has a Verizon share everything plan - a mini to an iPhone may be the easy way to go.
