Connected Device Plan FAQs

General Information

  1. What is a connected device plan?

    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.
