I purchased a verizon ipad with mifi on november 13th, and have used it for @1 hour worth of internet and for 4 hours worth of netflix shows (1.5 hours out of the country in Toronto). Today, I got a text telling me that I have incurred over $500.00 in additional data and roaming charges.
I immediately called global customer service, and they confirmed that I had relatively minimal usage time-wise (4-5 hours, as reported) but told me that I had used over 30MBs (streaming?).
My first bill from this Verizon Ipad is officially costing me more than half of the cost of the actual Ipad. I am completely in shock and can't believe that Verizon would put out such a deceptive product. This is the "small print" that they don't warn you about. If you get an Ipad from Verizon, DON'T USE THE MIFI. The only way this product is worthwhile for the usage they show you in the commercials is if you have your own wifi.
