    Does the iPad on Verizon require a two year contact to activate with a data plan?

    Or can the data plan be dropped any time and the iPad used on wifi only?

    Thanks!

    I doubt it, but I don't know for certain. Call them up and ask.

    I thought the iPad had to be a WiFi only iPad. If you drop the plan, you pay the ETF.

    Or visit the VZW web site... I think they may do pre-paid iPad service... T-Mobile has data only iPad plans that have a small amount of free data every month and an ability to pay as you go for more...

    I visited the website. It showed both a prepaid plan and data plan.
    I can't tell if they require a two year contact for the data plan.

    I'm asking for a friend that has an iPad on a data plan currently. But they never use the iPad.

    If they buy it at a discounted price, it requires a contract for 2 years.
    If they buy it a full price, then it does not require a contract.

    If you are activating an existing (already purchased iPad), then the data plan can be added and dropped at will as needed.

    When I bought my iPads from Verizon they didn't offer a subsidized plan for iPads. You had to pay the full retail costs. You could then turn the data on and off without the worry of a contract. I'm sure there are connection fees, but I have 4 company iPads on Verizon and none are on contract.

    I think Verizon gives $100 off with a two year contract. Which is a rip off considering you will be paying $240 over the course of 2 years for Verizon to give you a $100 discount. And of course they have various "deals" when you purchase an iPhone and iPad together. How did the OP purchase their iPad? That will give the answer.
