    What plan is that Peligro?
    It's the prepaid option on the Verizon model you don't have to have Verizon cell service to do the pre paid option. Just pay as you go

    Exactly my reasoning. My iPad mini has been my hotspot for my ps vita, 3ds and MacBook Air. The battery just goes forever when I need it. Since in on a family share plan, the iPad just uses the data from my phone anyway.
    Great thinking, bro, I like that...

    I have 4G in my mini & use it a lot. I use it at work & while out. I'm in Australia where iPads are unlocked (not sure if they are in the US?) and I have a pre-paid sim. It's optional if I put data in it or not. I use Telstra since their 4G coverage is great here & I pay $180 for 12GB data with 12 months expiry. If I have remaining data left and I recharge the SIM, then the remaining data rolls over into the next year (or month if I was to pick the monthly recharge). I find that 12GB is plenty & the 12 month option makes it great since I can use it little one month & lots the next without thinking about it. So, for myself, it's worth getting the cellular version. For yourself though, I think you need to consider costs in your country vs how often you will use it.

    I have purchased two iPad with retina (iPad4) units and both were LTE/WIFI units. I put them on my mobile share and pay only $10/ea per month for them. But we saw no point in wifi only, because we go a lot of places that wouldn't have a signal.

    I am definitely getting a data plan with my iPad Mini with Retina. I have a Verizon Family Plan and it is only 10 a month to add the iPad.

    I bought a Verzon capable iPad 3 but a year later and I have never use it with my Verizon account. I think if I get a Mini I will just save the money and tether it it to my 5s.

    I have about 39 more weeks of a summer promo that AT&T had, 1GB/7days for .99.

    Yep, it's only 10 a month for me as well on a verizon data sharing plan. Plus you should get a subsidy for your LTE ipad of 400 or more off making it cost less than a wifi only version.
    Subsidy for iPad? This is the first I've heard of that... I had VZW iPad 3 (3.1, limited edition), purchased from VZW- def no subsidy then. Now have mini wi-fi only, amd need to go back to LTE with either mini2 or Air.

    Details, please!
