Techie Help

Recommended Posts

My wife wants an iPad for our anniversary in a few weeks and we found them at walmart for 499 and at the Verizon store they are 629. Can I buy it at walmart and add it to my Verizon account or no we asked the "help" at walmart and she had no clue and was rude so we walked away so I figured I'd ask here I'll get a straight answer.

i dont think so. Pretty sure it has to be the 3G/4G whatever version, you were probably looking at the Wifi only model

We called best buy we got it all figured out. Buy the iPad for 499 that gives us 50 off anything else so we get a free Verizon hotspot which is 50 a month and gives us Internet for 5 devices all we got is our 2 iPhones and soon iPad I have the xbox but never play online. So this way we cancel our time warner Internet we never use and is more then what that hot spot will be and have wifi every where we go. That's how they explained it over the phone at least does that make sense to you or am I being miss informed I'm lost in the sauce like a meatball when it comes to this.

They limit your usage to 5 GB per month. After that, they charge you overages. That xbox won't play well over the air, so if you plan on ever using online play, don't try it on that.

If you just browse the web on all these devices you'll be fine. If you get into video/music streaming, you'll blow through 5GB pretty quickly.

Couldn't you just tether your iPhone as a wifi hotspots rather than buying a new hotspots? Could be cheaper in the long run rather than having multiple devices for internet?

Idk I think its extra also, I was just gonna buy a wireless router and run it off that threw time Warner but the wife called and got the other idea. She mostly will use it for games that's it and the face time feature so I can see the kids while at training. I dont even play the xbox anymore I haven't played in almost a year so that shouldent be a problem
