Re: Woo hoo
I tried that trick. I wanted to move my unlimited, grandfathered Alltel aircard account over to LTE but no dice. That was when we didn't have landline access at home and were dependent on VZW for our internet access.
I have a 1st Gen iPad wifi only, but we got our daughter the iPad2 as a graduation gift last summer. The dual cameras and the retina display (not to mention a faster processor) would be lovely, but I don't know if the cost is worth the upgrade.
I have a feeling the LTE on the iPad3 with be a change in my plan which will void the grandfathered unlimited.
So just going with the Ipad2 3g may be the best choice for me but I will wait and see.
Actually 3G is enough speed for me on the iPad for streaming. I want to keep grandfathered unlimited for as long as I can.
The adventure continues...Sanctuary....
I still have iPad 1 unlimited data SIM. I'm thinking if we swap that sim for an LTE SIM and give them IMEI of an LTE iPad 3, will the account get provisioned automatically to Unlimited LTE?
the apn is the same on hspa and lte "broadband"
As someone that is in the process of upgrading from only a 3G to a faux 4G hspa+ phone they are different plans they told me I had to get my company to switch plans from 2GB 3G plan to a 4G plan, so I don't know if they'll let you transfer unlimited to LTE. It's worth a shot, but it's more than just giving them the imei, the apn's are different for 4G from what I've read.
For smartphones the APN is different it's "PTA", but I have a metered 4G LTE tablet plan and the APN is "Broadband" just like the iPad's APN.
