Connected device plans are for data-only devices on your Verizon Wireless account, like a Jetpack®, tablet, etc., that don't share data with a phone.
You may need a connected device plan if any of the following apply to you:
- You don't have a phone on your account, just data-only devices
- You mix and match unlimited plans on your account
- You have an older plan without shared data (e.g., Nationwide)
Note: If you have a shared data plan on your account, you don't need an extra connected device plan. You'll just pay a monthly access fee for your connected device, and it will use your shared data allowance.
